The new British musical will now have its world premiere on Stream.Theatre on the 26th February.

The filming for The Sorcerer’s Apprentice has had to be halted due to unforeseen circumstances, meaning that it will now get its world premiere on the streaming platform stream.theatre from Friday 26th February until Sunday 14 March 2021.

Talking about the news, producer James Seabright said: “The birth of this magical new musical has been a five -year journey to date, so a small final delay only heightens the air of suspense! Thankfully we are only having to postpone the streaming schedule by a month and to build excitement, we are today releasing a new video and song, ‘Spellbound’, featuring Mary Moore and Yazdan Qafouri.”
