Winnie and Wilbur: Winnie the Witch

Olive and the Backstage Ghost

For ages 8-12

Olive Preiss finds a beautiful old theater that she’s never noticed before. She enters, goes onstage, and sings a song. “Thank you for that lovely audition, darling,” comes a voice from the shadows. “I believe I have just the part for you.”

As opening day approaches, Olive’s doubts and fears grow. But no matter what, this show must go on… and on… and on...

Doll Bones

For ages 10-14

Poppy has been having dreams about her doll, Queen—and the ghost of a girl who will not rest until the bone-china doll is buried in her empty grave.
