THE MAGICIAN'S ELEPHANT with Wela Mbusi
Wela Mbusi joins the cast of brand new musical The Magician's Elephant with the Royal Shakespeare Company. The show opens at the Royal Shakespeare Theare in Stratford-upon-Avon on 14th October 2021 and runs until 1st January 2022.
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.
This brand new musical for all the family reminds us all that even the impossible can be possible when we open our eyes and hearts to those around us.
The Magician’s Elephant is adapted from Kate DiCamillo's prize-winning novel, directed by Sarah Tipple (Associate Director The Boy in the Dress) and designed by Colin Richmond (Wendy & Peter Pan).
