Open Eye adapts The Sorcerer's Apprentice for the puppet stage in a look at youth and aging, the allure of power, and the beauty of a life well lived. A world premiere, this is the first full-length puppet show conceived, written, designed and directed by Michael Sommers for the Open Eye main stage since the theatre's inaugural opening production of A Prelude to Faust in 2007. The original score is composed by Eric Jensen. Puppeteers include Open Eye veteran, Kyle Loven, and Open Eye Artistic Associates, Liz Schachterle and Justin Spooner.
