Auditions for our Spring Kids Cushion Cabaret production
The Sorcerer's Apprentice
Written by Anne Hodgson
Directed by Anne Hodgson and Jacqueline Strilchuk
A fun filled story of magic! A young boy decides he needs to find a job to help his poor mother.
He meets a few people along the way and finally comes to a rather strange looking castle
inhabited by a sorcerer, his mischievous talking cat, and a dove. The sorcerer hires him to clean
up the castle…and change the kitty litter. Alex, the boy, discovers that he is working for a
sorcerer. His dream has always been to become a magician himself! With the help of the dove,
he secretly unlocks the sorcerer’s magic spell book and begins to study. Alex soon discovers he
is working for a very grumpy sorcerer. Because he is always having nightmares and can never
sleep, he has become an evil sorcerer. He plans to create a magic potion to take over the
kingdom, but of course, Alex saves the day, and, as well, helps the sorcerer with his problem!
