Beanie Boren, a science wiz who is not keen on reading, has designed a book reading machine for the science fair. It combines a computer, a mini video cam, and a contraption of his own design to enable one to read three books at once. Unfortunately, the machine is neither user-friendly nor bug-free. When Beanie turns it on, lights flash, thunder booms, and out pop the witches from Snow White, Hansel and Gretel,  and The Wizard of Oz, each set to wreak havoc! Beanie must get them back into the books with help from the good guys in the same stories. Afterward, he is eager to read about his new friends– the old-fashioned way.

Please note the Theater for Young Audience evening performances begin at 7:30 pm.
