SYNOPSIS

How to Enchant a Bookshop
By Todd Wallinger

Dorothy Gale, Tom Sawyer, and the other beloved literary characters from the best-selling The Enchanted Bookshop are back — for the first time — in this heartwarming prequel about how the bookshop first became enchanted. This play is simply magical, whether or not your audience is familiar with The Enchanted Bookshop. Margie has high hopes for success but soon discovers that running a bookshop is harder than expected, and rent is even harder to come by. Thankfully, Feonora, a young fairy-in-training, can’t wait to use the magic she’s learned to help Margie. The student enchantress has been warned to never use the spell that brings storybook characters to life, so, of course, Feonora does just that, bringing to life Cinderella, Don Quixote, Beatrix Potter’s Two Bad Mice, and more! Now if she could just convince the characters to give up their newly-found freedom before any human sees them! With a shorter running time and smaller cast, How to Enchant a Bookshop is sure to enchant your school and community theatre audience with the same book-loving charm that made The Enchanted Bookshop so magical!

How to Enchant a Bookshop has never been produced by TCT or HHT.
