We’re excited to announce the Cast of THE LOST SPELLS ?

Theatre by the Lake, Goblin Theatre, Watford Palace Theatre and Polka present The Lost Spells

A girl with no name finds a magical book of spells that conjures up a wild world. Moths appear from nowhere; Owls light up the dark; a Red Fox leads the way down a rabbit hole to a brand new wonderland. As she journeys through the wild world, she meets a host of wonderful characters on a fantastical adventure like no other; she learns the dandelion time, meets a boy who turns into a seal, flies with band of jackdaws and battles with conkers – on a quest to find that which was once lost.

A fun, wild and boisterous adventure full of paw-tapping music and dancing, played live on-stage by talented actor-musicians, The Lost Spells is a riot of colour and a new Alice in Wonderland, celebrating the magic, power and wonder of nature that could be just outside your window.

Adapted from the ‘cultural phenomenon’ and bestselling book that has delighted and inspired people of all ages, by globally renowned writer Robert Macfarlane and artist Jackie Morris. Moving, joyful and funny, The Lost Spells is a new musical for anyone who wants to celebrate and save the natural world around us – be that in the city or countryside, before it’s lost forever.

Adapted from the book by Robert Macfarlane & Jackie Morris | Music & lyrics by Mary Erskine & Will Dollard | Book by Matt Borgatti, featuring original writing by Robert Macfarlane
