Having garnered an impressive array of 4 and 5 star reviews from its initial online outing, The Sorcerer's Apprentice is set to get a further run on stream.theate from 25 March to 11 April.

The show will also be spreading its streaming wings to the USA where it will be premiered on Stellar.

The Sorcerer's Apprentice was filmed live with multiple cameras at Southwark Playhouse in February 2021 after its planned season was cancelled due to lockdown restrictions.

Producer James Seabright said ...

"The Sorcerer's Apprentice has already been seen by more people via stream-theatre than we could have fitted into six weeks of live shows at Southwark Playhouse.

Happily this is not the end of our streaming adventure.

Today we announce a new streaming period from 25 March to 11 April on stream.theatre, targeted at family audiences over the Easter period.

This will be complemented by scheduled streaming over the same dates on the Stellar platform to make the show more accessible to audiences in the USA."
