Kids (and parents), grab your passport – it’s time for an adventure in the “Magic Tree House”. Join us on Tuesday afternoon, March 27, 2012, at The Cedars for “Passport to Adventure! A Magic Tree House Live Reading Tour”. Presented by Lemuria, Fondren Renaissance Foundation and the Mississippi Children’s Museum, this event is part of a national tour, sponsored by Random House Children’s Books that brings Jack and Annie – characters from Mary Pope Osborne’s beloved Magic Tree House series – live and in person to meet their fans. The series celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. Jack and Annie will roll into 15 different cities across the United States aboard the “Magic Tree House Express”.
Fans will enjoy Jack and Annie’s magical traveling adventures through a live, theatrical performance with songs based on the bestselling Magic Tree House series. This event, locally sponsored by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Mississippi, Trustmark and Brown Bottling, will include cool giveaways and an official Jack and Annie “book stamping.” So get your passport and reserve your ticket – the event starts at 5:00 and the live play starts at 6:00. Tickets are $10.00 (per child which includes one adult escort) and are redeemable at the event for one paperback and one healthy snack.
The Cedars is located at 4145 Old Canton Road in the Fondren area of northeast Jackson. A portion of each ticket price will go towards scholarships for the Summer Children’s Art Camp at The Cedars. For more information on this event or to purchase a ticket, log on to www.lemuriabooks.com.
