The Messy Magic Adventure! (Aotearoa NZ)

Thursday 11th-Friday 12th October 2018

Rollicking Entertainment Ltd

Created and performed by Lizzie Tollemache and David Ladderman

Spray and Wipe are two cleaners who have been hired for their most exciting job ever, cleaning a magician’s house!

But when they accidentally let the magic out of its box, everything is turned topsy-turvy…

Now, the audience must help Spray and Wipe think of a plan to get the magic back in the box before the magician comes home, as her house gets messier and messier!

The best of circus, slapstick and magic combine in this very special adventure for primary school aged children and their families.

Waterproof cover provided for those in the front row…
