The Millennial Wizard Mission

Millennial Wizard was founded on the streets of the Edinburgh Fringe, when our own Ed Buckley came out with the worst idea for a skit we’d ever heard…

“What if there was a wizard making a potion, but he was like, a millennial?”

Our mission to improve his terrible comic idea has evolved into a mission to make great theatre, for everyone, not just Ed. With only a studio, a pocket money budget, and our little brains, this year will push us to work with what we’ve got, to be magic-makers, conjuring great performances with our imaginations alone. We will push ourselves to overcome problems and challenges we identify, and we strive to produce interesting, unexpected and unique pieces with our ragtag team of theatre wizards!

We’ll begin with a re-imagining of a classic, then take on original writing, and then… who knows?

So our mission is to be interesting. For our audience as well as ourselves. To surprise ourselves with what we can achieve when we begin with a blank page.

…And of course, world peace!

I’m Amelie and I’ll be heading up socials, writing fresh works and helping bring pieces to life with acting and directing. I’ll be studying film next year at Bristol Uni. I like good horror and bad jokes, so if you’re scared or laughing, that might be me.

Hello I’m Ed! Performing has consumed my life for the past 12 years but now I’m excited to show off my skills behind the scenes as well as onstage, plus maybe vaulting a table or two. I’m not sure where my life will take me but I’m excited to spend the next year putting on great theatre for you all. Hope you enjoy!

Hello, I’m Miriam and I am the person behind the epic wizard dude you see trapped in the circle at the top of this page. With a little help from my artistic accomplice @ellafrancesca.design, the Millennial Wizard with his Avo-Staff, emotional-support Soy Milk and nose ring will guide you through the work we create this year.

I am buzzing to start this project because it means I get to experience so many different elements of my favourite ever thing ever ever – theatre! I will be doing a mixture of acting, directing, designing, marketing and generally running around in a subtle, theatre-induced frenzy, as is my talent.
To start the project off the right way there are only two things to say, SarRahMiFahLa and let the games begin!

Hi, I’m Corin and my goal is to be an actor. This dream really started when I was 9 years old and after seeing Henry 4th at the RSC I was hooked. I have submerged myself in Renaissance theatre for the last 8 years and I’m very excited to bring some reinvented classics to the stage with an incredibly talented group of artists. Along with acting I will help direct and edit the classical texts that we are reviving. This is going to be an awesome journey and I can’t wait to start.

The Duchess Of Malfi

Millennial Wizard performed their first show THE DUCHESS OF MALFI in October 2023.

A dark and witty revenge tragedy, suitable for ages 14+, the production was staged in the intimate Studio space at Playbox for two nights only.

In Webster’s tale of love and lies, the Duchess navigates a court controlled by her brothers through lies, bribes, and threat. Her fight to choose her own love will lead her, and those she loves, to face the most brutal of consequences.
