Art Center Youth Theatre Presents The Enchanted Bookshop Dec. 13, 14, 15

The Enchanted Bookshop

During the day, A Likely Story may look like any other used bookstore. But at night, it’s a place where magic happens. That’s when the characters inside the books come alive.

Six of those characters — Dorothy Gale, Robin Hood, Pollyanna, Sherlock Holmes, Heidi, and Tom Sawyer — long to help Margie, the scatterbrained owner, save her struggling store. But they’re not allowed to leave the building or be seen by human eyes. So when a pair of smugglers comes looking for a stolen necklace hidden inside one of the books, the characters are torn. Should they warn Margie and risk disappearing forever? Or can they find a way to defeat the crooks without being seen?

Featuring additional appearances by such beloved literary characters as the Queen of Hearts, Long John Silver, and Doctor Dolittle, this charming comedy celebrates the joy of reading in a fresh, fun-filled way.

No Body Like Jimmy

Eloise Vanlandingham is running for Congress and a small gathering for potential donors is planned by Nigel, her less-than-scrupulous campaign manager, and her husband Ralph. Just before the first guests arrive Harold, Ralph’s college roommate, shows up at the front door with a problem: he’s driving around town with a dead body in his van and he doesn’t know what to do with it. The body arrives in the house just as the first guests arrive. What can they do? They dress the body up like a guest and call him Jimmy.

“No Body Like Jimmy” is a fast-paced farce about politics and about a dead body being the life of the party
