Treat the entire family to this lively, new hip-hop musical based on the Magic Tree House adventure Stage Fright on a Summer Night by 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 transports them back to Elizabethan England. There, the daring sibling duo meet William Shakespeare himself — one of the greatest writers of all time! Adapted from Osborne's critically-acclaimed book series, this tuneful tale— an original NJPAC production presented in partnership with George Street Playhouse—is sure to be a hit with kids and grown-ups alike.

The 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. Showtime with Shakespeare features a book and lyrics by Jenny Laird and Will Osborne, with music and additional lyrics by Randy Courts.
