One ordinary day, on his way to the corner shop, Saul notices a rather confused looking girl, dressed in strange cloths, suddenly appear in the middle of the road. Her name is Agatha Black and what is extraordinary about Agatha is that she is from 1812 – and she’s desperate to get back.

Adapted from Janis Mackay‘s award winning children’s book, The Accidental Time Traveller is a magnificent new musical for all the family, full of hilarious misunderstandings, gripping action and spellbinding music.

Join Saul and his friends on an amazing time-travelling adventure as they try to decipher how to make time travel happen!

Brought to you by an exceptional young company of emerging talent from BYMT.
