Wizards, and Dragons, and Books…Oh My!
Fantasy Theatre Factory is proud to present a live performance of Wizards, and Dragons, and Books… Oh My!
Jojo, a great kid who loves to read… That is until some kids in the lunchroom start calling her names like “bookworm.” To avoid the bullying, Jojo goes to Mendel’s Magical Book Shop, hoping that she can sell his books and use the money to buy video games, so she’ll fit in with the other kids. Once in the Magic Book Shop though, things take an unexpected turn as the stories in her books magically start to jump to life all around her! Now, all of the pages to Jojo’s books are blank and the characters from her books are running wild in real life!
It’s up to Jojo to retell the stories to get her old friends to go back on the page. While Jojo works to get his favorite characters from her books to go back on to the pages they belong in, she remembers why she loves to read some much in the first place; It’s really FUN! Along the way Jojo starts to realize that all of his books have characters in them who are different, and that being different is what makes them special.
This show artfully weaves its featured books into its thru-line to create a show that both encourages reading and celebrates diversity.
