About Showtime with Shakespeare: A Magic Tree House Adventure:
The show must go on, in this new hip-hop musical! That's what Jack and Annie learn when the Magic Tree House whisks them back to Elizabethan England. There they meet William Shakespeare himself—one of the greatest writers of all time! But, Mr. Shakespeare is having a hard time with some of the actors in his latest show. Are Jack and Annie ready to make a big entrance? Or, will it be curtains for Shakespeare?
It was really amazing and spectacular.
– 6th grader at Cheshire Elementary School
