Overview:

Celebrate the joy of reading in a fresh, fun-filled, and musical way — the enormously popular children’s play, The Enchanted Bookshop, is now a musical!

An ordinary used book shop by day, A Likely Story becomes a magical place each night.  Thanks to a spell from the Book Fairy, the characters inside the books come alive each and every night.  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 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, Long John Silver, and Doctor Doolittle, and with a toe-tapping score from Stephen Murray featuring jazz, march, and pop tunes, this charming musical will enchant audiences young and old.
