There’s trouble on the Island of Jersey! Someone or something is tampering with the weather. Winters are wetter, summers shorter. The magpies are dominating the skies above the Island, while the rat population increases daily. The situation is grave.
Emma and Archie are sent to stay with their aunt, Mrs Le Lever, at Juniper Lodge, next to St Brelades and Portelet Bay. It soon becomes clear that this will be no ordinary summer holiday when they meet Seamus, the Island’s only leprechaun, and join his band of wild animals to thwart the magpies and rats. Meet Lady Lulu Limoges, the coolest cat on Jersey, plus Rocky, the dog, Cactus, the hedgehog, Swivel, the wise old owl, Fidgit, the squirrel and many more. It’s a race against time to preserve Jersey as we know it.
Will Tyson and his rabble of rats overrun the Island? Will Seamus’ magic dusts save the day…and who are the Jersey Royals?
Join us in this exciting new play, taken from the book ‘Magpies and Mischief’, written by Jersey author, Dr. Cameron McPhail, which is receiving its world premiere at Jersey Arts Centre.
Emily Juler will be playing the role of Sister Jane & Tom Blackmore will be playing the role of The Soldier in the European Premiere of the musical Queen of the Mist at London’s Jack Studio Theatre in April.
Queen of the Mist is based on the astounding and outrageous true story of Anna Edson Taylor, who set out to be the first person to survive a trip over Niagara Falls in a barrel of her own design.
With a soaring score that incorporates turn of the century themes with LaChiusa’s insightful and engaging style, this award-winning musical is the story of how one woman risked death so that she could live.
This production marks the European Premiere of the show.
The original 2011 Off-Broadway production won the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Musical and was nominated for six Drama Desk Awards, including Outstanding Musical.
