Print Story | Email Story

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Berkshire Theatre Group will present the BTG PLAYS 2019-2020 Touring Show, "Magic Tree House: Pirates Past Noon," based on the book "Magic Tree House: Pirates Past Noon" by Mary Pope Osborne, at The Colonial Theatre on Saturday, Feb. 22, at 2 p.m., as part of the 10x10 Upstreet Arts Festival.

There will be a book signing with Mary Pope Osborne from 1 to 1:45 p.m. in The Colonial Theatre lobby prior to the performance. Books will be available for purchase, provided by The Bookstore in Lenox.

This musical features a book by Jenny Laird and Will Osborne, lyrics by Randy Courts and Will Osborne and music by Randy Courts, with direction by Travis Daly. "Magic Tree House: Pirates Past Noon" is an adaptation of the fourth of 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 a hundred countries around the world.



The two siblings return to visit the 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 18th-century Caribbean—the time of pirates! The siblings meet Captain Bones, a mean old pirate who captures the two and forces them to help him find buried treasure. It's up to Jack and Annie to find their way back to the tree house and make their way home.

BTG PLAYS Touring Show is a part of Berkshire Theatre Group's year-round education program, which reaches 13,000 school children annually. Beginning in October and running through the school year, this production is appropriate for elementary and middle school aged children and family audiences, and is designed to introduce students to the excitement of live theatre. The tour travels to schools and venues all throughout Berkshire County and surrounding towns with a local company of artists, and a question and answer session with the actors follows each performance.
