What's your Sorcerer Name- (3)

Use the image above to work out yours or come up with your own, then hop over onto twitter or facebook to let us know what you came up with!

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

Charlie Hubble is a little boy with a very big dream, he wants to be a world-class magician.  So, he saves up his pocket money to buy The Big Book of Magic for Trainee Magicians.

Then he sets off to Mr Zacoor’s Toy Shop to buy his spellbook.  But Mr Zacoor is no ordinary shopkeeper, he’s a real life Sorcerer!  And he has a very special job for Charlie.

This delightful new show comes to life with an irresistible blend of music, puppetry and storytelling.  There’s also an enchanting toy shop setting filled with all sorts of magical surprises!

Little people aged 3-7 will love this funny, heartwarming tale but big people will have lots of fun, too.

In the final part of our series looking back at Phase one of the project we are exploring the work we’ve done with our venues…

“Plugged In is a fantastic programme which I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with at the ACE Centre. Seeing the diverse crowds it’s brought in, brilliant theatre/shows and overall positivity from the Plugged In team has been excellent to see and much needed for a town like Nelson”

Quote from Christopher Storey, Head Technician at The ACE Centre
