The Magic Flute by Stewart Auty

£24.00 incl. zero VAT

The approximate running time of this play is 40 minutes.

Set in Ancient Egypt but filled with modern pop songs, this version of The Magic Flute will not only have the audience bopping in the aisles but will provide children with a unique opportunity to make some Ancient Egyptian artworks for the set!


Prince Tamino and his friend Papageno, the bird catcher, set out to rescue the daughter of the evil Queen of the Night. It’s a daft plot and we borrowed it from Mozart’s opera of the same name but, nevertheless, it zips along merrily.

Songs suggested in the script are:

  • Holding out for a Hero
  • Stand by Your Man
  • Isn’t She Lovely?
  • Somebody to Love
  • Give Me Just A Little More Time
  • One Way Or Another
  • Devil Woman
  • Speak to me Pretty
  • To Dream the Impossible Dream.

As with all our plays, there are full production notes that give advice on scenery, prop and costume-making.

Backing tracks for the songs suggested in this play can be purchased for a modest amount each from or other backing track/karaoke companies in the UK or overseas.
