MAGIC TREE HOUSE: Showtime with Shakespeare

January 25, 2020 Des Moines Civic Center

A new theatrical production based on the MAGIC TREE HOUSE adventure Stage Fright on a Summer Night by The New York Times best-selling author Mary Pope Osborne.

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 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. ​

Mary Pope Osborne’s “Magic Tree House” series has been translated into 33 languages, has sold more than 135 million copies worldwide and is the No. 1 best-selling chapter book series of all time.
