Magic Tree House:
Showtime with Shakespeare

4:00 pm Sunday, November 3, 2019

Showtime with Shakespeare is a new theatrical production based on the Magic Tree House adventure Stage Fright on a Summer Night.

No matter what the show must go on! That’s what Jack and Annie learn when the Magic Tree House whisks them back to Elizabethan England. There,​ the daring sibling duo​ meet​s​ William Shakespeare—one of the greatest writers of all time. Based on the critically acclaimed book series by Mary Pope Osborne, this tuneful tale is a hip-hop hit with kids and grown-ups alike.

The Magic Tree House series has been translated into thirty-three languages, has sold more than 135 million copies worldwide, and is the best-selling chapter book series of all time.
