A magical tree house transports Jack and Annie to the land of the dinosaurs   

Magic Tree House: Dinosaurs before Dark KIDS is an adaptation of the first 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 the age of the dinosaurs, where the siblings courageously learn that things are not always what they seem.

Siblings, Jack and Annie, discover a tree house full of books while exploring one afternoon. Jack looks through a book about dinosaurs and wishes he could see a real one. Suddenly, the wind begins to blow and the tree house starts to spin wildly. When it finally stops, Jack and Annie open their eyes to find they have been transported back to the time of the dinosaurs.  Jack and Annie have a harrowing adventure, befriending some dinosaurs along the way as they try to make their way back home.

The Magic Treehouse Dinosaurs Before Dark KIDS is a one-act production.  It is rated G for all audiences.
