A note about rehearsals:  A weekly rehearsal schedule will be emailed. Your young performer(s) will be scheduled for rehearsal based on the scenes that are being practiced. There may be times when your young performer is not needed at rehearsal or is called for only part of a rehearsal.  It is extremely important to read the schedule each week to know when you are required at rehearsal.  If you have any Wednesday or Sunday conflicts, please note them on the registration form so that we can do our best to work around conflicts. All performers must attend the tech rehearsal on March 1st and the dress rehearsal on March 2nd. Thank  you!

About the Show:
Magic Tree House: Dinosaurs before Dark KIDS is an adaptation of the first of Mary Pope Osborne's award-winning fantasy adventure books from the Magic Tree House book series, which has sold more than 100 million copies and is available in more than 100 countries around the world. Jack and Annie’s tree house transports them back in time to the age of the dinosaurs, where the siblings courageously learn that things are not always what they seem.

Siblings, Jack and Annie, discover a tree house full of books while exploring one afternoon. Jack looks through a book about dinosaurs and wishes he could see a real one. Suddenly, the wind begins to blow and the tree house starts to spin wildly. When it finally stops, Jack and Annie open their eyes to find they have been transported back to the time of the dinosaurs. Jack and Annie have a harrowing adventure, befriending some dinosaurs along the way as they try to make their way back home.
