We're back in the West End!
Following the sell-out production of Jungle Rumble in February, this October half-term, we’re taking our 4-7s theme to the stage again with Magical Merlin. Tickets are now on sale!
Our West End theatre musicals give Perform children an amazing opportunity to see their term’s show performed by professional actors. But, whether your child attends Perform or not, Magical Merlin is a great day out for any families looking for some memorable half-term fun.
The show is set in Ancient Britain, a wild world of witches and wizards where Magical Merlin’s miraculous powers rule supreme. So, when the baby King Arthur is born and jealous older sister, Morgan Le Fay, starts turning people into animals, it’s down to Merlin to save the day. Teaming up with brave Sir Lancelot and beautiful Princess Guinevere, the adventurers ride a fire-breathing dragon to The Lady Of The Lake and discover where true power lies. But can they get back to Tintagel Castle before Morgan turns the baby Arthur into a hamster?
With a spellbinding mix of magic, songs and dancing, and uplifting themes of friendship and self-belief, Magical Merlin is a spectacular mini-musical sure to enchant the whole family.
