Why See Showtime With Shakespeare?

MusicalsFamily ShowsTheatre for Kids and Families

A Hip Hop Musical

Based on Mary Pope Osborne's Stage Fright on a Summer Night, from her best-selling Magic Tree House book series, Showtime with Shakespeare sees daring adventurers Jack and Annie, transported to Elizabethan England where they meet none other than William Shakespeare, the world's most famous playwright.

But Mr. Shakespeare isn't a happy man; some of the actors in his latest play aren't playing ball and are set to ruin the show. He risks it all when Jack and Annie step in and take to the stage - will it be his final curtain call, or will his audience rave about the performance? Find out in this highly original hip hop musical.

Mary Pope Osborne's Magic Tree House book series have been translated into 33 languages, and have sold more than 135 million copies worldwide, making it the best-selling chapter book series of all time. This play is set to be a hit with all kids, parents and the whole family.

Such a joyful hoot. With its kinetic dancing, broad mugging and belty anthems, it makes you believe in musical comedy again.
