A new hip hop production based on the Magic Tree House book series’ adventure Stage Fright on a Summer Night by New York Times best-selling author Mary Pope Osborne. This tuneful tale teaches Shakespeare to all ages through hip hop.

As brother-sister adventurers Jack and Annie time-travel back to Elizabethan England to help Shakespeare mount his latest production, the audience is whisked along on a journey of exploration—of the world, of the relationships between people, and of what makes us the same, even when we’re from different cultures. It’s all told through lively hip-hop music and choreography that not only makes Shakespeare accessible to all, but is also guaranteed to get kids moving and singing along.  Adapted from the critically acclaimed book series by Mary Pope Osborne and produced by NJPAC and George Street Playhouse, this musical tale is sure to be a 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. Showtime With Shakespeare features a book and lyrics by Jenny Laird and Will Osborne, with music and additional lyrics by Randy Courts.
