Event Notes


Celebrate the joy of reading in a fresh, family friendly way!

The enormously popular children’s play, The Enchanted Bookshop, is now a musical!

A Likely Story, an ordinary book shop by day, is a magical place each night. Thanks to a spell from the Book Fairy, the story book characters come alive after dark. Five of those characters, Snow White, Robin Hood, Sherlock Holmes, Heidi, and Captain Hook, long to help Margie, the scatterbrained owner, save her struggling store. But they’re not allowed to leave the building or be seen by human eyes.

So when a pair of bungling smugglers comes looking for a stolen necklace hidden inside one of the books, the characters are torn. Should they warn Margie and risk disappearing forever? Or can they find a way to defeat the crooks without being seen?

Including appearances by other literary characters such as the Queen of Hearts, and with a toe-tapping score from Stephen Murray, this charming musical will enchant audiences young and old.
