Young, hungry, and on his own, Charles finds himself in a mystical wood populated by talking (and singing) animals and plants, including prickly Jeremy Groundhog, southern belle Ms. Orange Tree, the grounded Mr. Juniper Bush, and others. Catching a glimpse of Marguerite, the queen of the forest, Charles is astounded when she makes everyday objects sail through the air, work in the garden, and seem to come alive. Charles has never seen a sorcerer before and he eagerly seeks to become her apprentice. Marguerite grants him three chances to prove his worthiness, but his arrogance, disrespect, and gullibility cause him to fail every time. In desperation, Charles asks Big John King, a creepy flimflam artist, to convince Marguerite to take him back. When King’s sinister minions attack Marguerite, Charles comes to his mentor’s aid and fends them off in a spectacular battle. For his loyalty and bravery, Marguerite gives Charles another chance. He has finally learned to listen to others and is truly ready to be the sorcerer’s apprentice.“Judging by the amount of children’s laughter, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice…is a definite crowd pleaser.”—TheaterMania.com.
