Magic Tree House: Pirates Past Noon KIDS is an adaptation of  Mary Pope Osborne's award-winning fantasy adventure book.  Jack and Annie’s tree house takes them to an exotic island with pirates, where the two discover the power of friendship and the simple pleasures in everyday life. The two siblings visit a magic tree house on a dreary, rainy day. They find a book where the sun is shining and the waves are crashing, so they wish to travel to this tropical place. They realize that they are in the eighteenth-century Caribbean, the time of pirates! The siblings meet Captain Bones, a mean old pirate who captures the two and forces them to help find buried treasure. It's up to Jack and Annie to find their way back to the tree house and make their way home.

Come dive into the spontaneous art of improvisation! In this class, we continue to explore the fundamentals of improv while learning how to ‘get out of our heads’ and build a strong group dynamic.
