Rollicking Entertainment presents Messy Magic Adventure! There’s magic on the loose these school holidays at the Blue Baths!

Spray and Wipe are two cleaners who have been hired for their most exciting job ever, cleaning a magician’s house! But when they accidentally let the magic out of its box, everything is turned topsy-turvy…

Now, the audience must help Spray and Wipe think of a plan to get the magic back in the box before the magician comes home, as her house gets messier and messier! The best of circus, slapstick and magic combine in this very special adventure for primary school aged children and their families.
