Magdalen College School returned to the Oxford Playhouse stage with an uplifting double-bill of new works of musical theatre.

Leave it to Puck! by John Mann and Alex Thomas. You’d have thought he might have learned his lesson, but four hundred years on, mischief-loving Puck is still causing romantic mayhem in an enchanted wood. One day his magic misfires, leading a young girl, Willow, and her parents into a life they hadn’t bargained for. This new musical showcases the best of Magdalen College School's singing and acting talent in a celebration of family, fairy dust and fun!

Followed b Birdland by Bob Chilcott and Charles Bennett. Birdland is the result of a collaboration between renowned choral composer Bob Chilcott (‘A contemporary hero of British choral music’ – The Observer) and award-winning poet/librettist Charles Bennett (Soundings, How to make woman out of water). Their work has previously featured in the BBC Proms. This is a specially-commissioned work by Magdalen College School, Young Norfolk Arts Trust and Norfolk Music Hub.
