My family was introduced to The #1 Chapter Book Series - The Magic Tree House from recommendations I received from friends almost three summers ago when my oldest started reading chapter books. This book series is truly one of the best children's series that we have read together as a family. I can't express how much we have learned from the stories and the places that Annie and Jack visit and we feel immersed in the story. We have had fun with all the books in the series and how they all tie together with each other.



The Dallas Children's Theater has taken the magic of the Magic Tree house book and extended it onto the stage with their adaptation of the story. Following Jack and Annie on the journey is fun and offers many experiences kids can relate to easily. 

A Ghost's Tale for Mr. Dickens takes a special twist! Be among the first to see brother and sister duo, Jack and Annie, whisked back in time aboard their magical tree ride to the foggy streets of Victorian England. Their mission: to help the famous writer Charles Dickens overcome a terrible bout of writer's block. With a little help from three ghost friends, Jack and Annie learn how charity and kindness can change the course of history. No "Bah Humbug" here...this musical is a fantasy adventure filled with wonderful songs and dances of the season! (written by DCT)

This is the #1 selling chapter book and YOU don't want to miss it. The show is recommended for kids 6+ but I did take my 3 year old and she did great. I would suggest you think about your kids who are younger and there tolerance for noise and time. What makes DCT special is that there are special times for ASL, and Sensory - Friendly performances that make it possible for every adult and child be apart of the magic of the theater.. 



The DCT is very intentional in choosing plays that the whole family can enjoy and leave with a greater appreciation for the love of theater and live performances. I feel like these theater performances are special and are events that kids need to experience first hand. That is why I can't wait for your family to go and see A Ghost's Tale for Mr. Dickens at the Dallas Children's Theater.
