Journey of the Magi is a sparkling production of dance, theatre, song and poetry. Entertaining, powerful and compelling, Journey of the Magi is back - and it’s as festive, witty and poignant as ever.
T S Eliot’s poem, Journey of the Magi is the inspiration for the show. We are reminded not only of the famous journey the wise men made following the star to Jesus, but also of the ‘journey’ each of us makes every year in preparing for Christmas day. Images from the poetry and familiar Christmas scenes explode in a mix of laugh-out-loud funny, moving and entertaining theatre and dance. The result? We hope not only to entertain, but to offer a chance to reflect and refocus.
Forget The Nutcracker, Springs Dance Company’s Journey of the Magi is the best Christmas show I have ever seen! I went along to see it one dark, wet and dismal night in Birmingham and I came out having been touched, amused and moved to tears. Journey of the Magi looks beyond the tinsel and trappings and reveals the real meaning of Christmas.
This performance lasts for 90 minutes approx. plus there is a 20 minute interval, which provides the perfect time for festive mince pies! All we need for the performance is a clear flat space of 6m x 6m, on which we lay our dance floor. Springs provides all its own lighting, sound equipment and set and would just need 6 hours in the space to set up for the show before the performance start time.
Journey of the Magi is enjoyed by children and adults alike, and can be accompanied by a workshop or series of workshops in theatre, church, school or community settings.

What touches me … is the youthful freshness and generosity which I experienced in your show Journey of the Magi. I have never laughed so much!
My family loved Journey of the Magi. I find moments still coming to me in flashbacks, causing me to laugh or ponder the message you were conveying. Your final scenes left people in tears. Journey of the Magi is a work of art and deserves the highest accolades.
