Merlin the Magician

A Magical Spellbinding Classic 

Director: Dr Vicki Ooi

Adaptation: Michael Sharmon


The stories of King Arthur and The Knights of the Round Table have been passed down from generation to generation. The tales of the many obstacles Arthur faced to become King, along with his wise and loving guardian Merlin, have become legendary. Merlin was one of the most powerful wizards. He was an amazing sorcerer, prophet and tutor. Merlin the Magician will follow the wizard’s story and how he takes young Arthur under his wing and helps him to become a great leader. Join AFTEC for another exciting adventure full of enchantment and magic.
