A new theatrical production based on the Magic Tree House adventure Stage Fright on a Summer Night by The New York Times bestselling author Mary Pope Osborne.  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 meets William Shakespeare himself—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.
