Stratford Editorial 7th Oct, 2021   0

THERE will magic in the air at the RSC with the arrival of new musical The Magician’s Elephant.

The production, in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre at Stratford, is adapted from Kate DiCamillo’s prize-winning novel.

Baltese is a town where nothing extraordinary ever happens. Recovering from a recent war, it’s a lonely place, where young Peter lives a harsh life.

Then one day, a magician conjures an elephant from the sky. The creature’s appearance sets off a chain of events so remarkable, so impossible, that it changes Baltese forever.

Peter is catapulted into the quest of his life, overturning everything he ever thought he knew, and discovering that happiness can come from the most unexpected places.

The family show, which runs from October 18 to January 1, is directed by Sarah Tipple, designed by Colin Richmond, with music and lyrics by Marc Teitler and Nancy Harris.
