The Magic Tree House: A Night in New Orleans

October 19 through November 10, 2013 at Newmark Theatre

Directed by Stan Foote

The Magic Tree House books have been taking young readers on amazing adventures for more than 20 years. In A Night in New Orleans (based on the book “A Good Night for Ghosts”) fearless explorers Jack and Annie travel back in time to 1915 New Orleans where they encourage a young Louis Armstrong to follow his dreams. Featuring a live band, ghostly pirates, and a powerful message about dreams and possibilities, this musical introduces young audiences to the thrill of live theater—and the joy of jazz! 

  • In partnership with the author and publisher, OCT will distribute 4,000 free tickets and books to third graders in regional Title 1 schools to provide access to reading and the theater for children who might not otherwise be able to participate.
  • The Magic Tree House series has sold over 100 million copies worldwide and been translated into 30 languages.
