Youth FACT presents “The Enchanted Bookshop”

Posted by admin on Wednesday, February 20 @ 18:07:28 MST (62 reads)

Youth FACT presents “The Enchanted Bookshop” on April 12-14!  Featuring a cast of local elementary and middle school children, this charming comedy celebrates the joy of reading in a fresh, fun-filled way!

During the day, A Likely Story may look like any other used bookstore. But at night, it’s a place where magic happens. That’s when the characters inside the books come alive. Six of those characters — Dorothy Gale, Robin Hood, Pollyanna, Sherlock Holmes, Heidi, and Tom Sawyer — 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 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? 

Performances will take place at Fort Atkinson High School at the following times:
April 12 at 7pm
April 13 at 7pm
April 14 at 2pm

Tickets: $6.00
