About this Event

SHOW TASTER

THE SHOW

Beyond Theatre have created an immersive wizardry experience ,taking you on a rock musical journey through a world of darkness. You will wonder how the candles light, how the winds will howl, what may be an illusion and what actually IS reality - expect the unexpected.

Having taken Jesus Christ Superstar past the boundaries of conventional theatre , the company now invites you to enter the magical world of the WhiteWitch.

Sit at your table, taste WhiteWitch’s mead, enjoy a Parva Prandium (“Light bite”), sip smoking cocktails and allow our show to provide a heavy cloak of surrounding sound.

THE STORY

Born into a world of black magic, Alicia (The WhiteWitch) is an outcast. Her magic powers are confined to helping others ,whereas her compatriots use their powers for selfish purposes and to do only evil. The umbrella of darkness is held by Tenebrus ( The Black Witch ) and Malum (The Black Wizard). Alicia believes that she has no place amongst these people and decides to break free. A match lit in daylight is unnoticed,but struck in a dark room becomes a shining light. Validus (The White Wizard) is so blinded and gently falls in love. The power of love is infectious and slowly the White Room becomes a glowing magnet for reform and correction.

The show is a musical parable.

"You can have anything you want if you are willing to give up the belief you can't have it."
