Audiences will be mesmerised by the multitude of flying, back flipping, juggling, wire walking and roller-skating performers when it’s performed live at the Castle Theatre in Wellingborough on Thursday March 3 and Friday March 4 starting at 7.30pm.

Zhelaniy is a place where wishes become reality. The story is based on the Russian folklore story of Cvetik-Semicvetik, or the flower with seven colours, by Valentin Petrovich Katayev where each of the petals represent a wish.

Loveable buffoons guide audiences through this tantalising tale, while Professor Wacko and his crazy side-kick Natalia Mezentceva invite the audience to a wondrous and mysterious enchanted garden, a place where dreams come true and a place to see magnificent feats of human achievement, the likes of which have never been witnessed in Great Britain before.

Tickets cost between £15 and £20 and can be purchased by calling the box office on 01933 270 007 or visit
