“The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” tells the cautionary story of a lazy young apprentice who has enough knowledge to initiate mystical forces without the ability to stop them. Mary Hall Surface’s delightful adaptation offers a magical look at this timeless tale, based on a poem by the German poet Goethe and known to many through the classic Disney film “Fantasia.”
“The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” is directed by Cocchiarale. The cast features Widener University students Ariel Diehl, Rebecca Gomezrueda, Nathan Mirando, Tyler Palma, Kirk Reichart and Erika Sprague. Technical assistance is provided by Daniel Castagna.
