Take a trip with Miracle into uncharted waters
And find yourself wrecked on a treacherous shore,
Beset by moon calves, puppy-headed monsters,
And apes with foreheads villainous low.
Discover an enchanted island,
Twangling with sweet airs and instruments,
Humming with sucking bees and smelly macs,
Ringing with the cries of enemies,
Beating with old jealousies and young love,
And all stirred up by a cross magician…

Every summer the company embark on a popular outdoor performance tour across the South West, and are a highlight of the Artsreach summer programme in Dorset.

With new music by Jim Carey and the original text respectfully shaken and stirred, Director Bill Scott liberally applies Miracle’s offbeat and humorous style to this classic, creating a fresh new production that will delight audiences of all ages.
Grab your friends, bring a blanket, pack a picnic and get prepared for a night of Miracle madness - come rain or shine! Recommended 8+
