BTG PLAYS! 2022-2023 Touring Show
As part of the 10X10 Upstreet Arts Festival, BTG presents BTG PLAYS! 2022-23 Touring Show, Magic Tree House: The Knight at Dawn KIDS based upon “Magic Tree House #2: The Knight at Dawn” by Mary Pope Osborne. A magical tree house transports Jack and Annie to medieval times in this adaptation of the best-selling book series. Magic Tree House: The Knight at Dawn KIDS is an adaptation of the second 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 an age of knights, where the siblings discover the power of hope and the true meaning of gallantry.
After their adventures in the time of the dinosaurs, the two siblings, Jack and Annie, return to visit the magic tree house. As they read a book about knights and the middle ages, Annie is intrigued by the Black Knight and the mysterious quest one must successfully complete before becoming a knight. When she wishes to visit the castle in the book, the siblings are whisked away to medieval times. They set off to learn more about the Black Knight and his quest, experiencing a grand medieval feast, escaping through secret tunnels and dancing with enchanted suits of armor, all in an effort to find their way back home.
Author Mary Pope Osborne will be signing books from 1pm to 1:45pm in The Colonial Theatre lobby prior to the performance. Books will be available for purchase provided by The Bookloft in Great Barrington.
