Everleigh is nine years old, and her mother is a witch! It may sound fun to get a broomstick for a birthday present, or to turn your best friend into a frog. But when her own magic lessons begin, Everleigh’s spells keep going wrong! That is, until the day she finds a magic book and everything changes…

A new musical play from Melanie Gall, creator of 4 STAR children’s hits Opera Mouse and Jazz Cat.

Everleigh and the Magic Book

Melanie Gall Presents for Kids—Kids Venue

This is our favorite opera singer’s kids production. She’s also doing ‘A Toast To Prohibition’, obviously adult, at this Fringe; which I’m looking forward to.

She’s charming in her lush robe and witches hat from Germany, portraying a nine year old aspiring sorcerer who just can’t seem to master the craft. Smart woman, she tailors this half hour romp precisely to suit the attention span of the wee ones. I took four of my grandkids and they all enjoyed the show. Her sincere love of kids is obvious, and she even shared her real age with us! And included the crying baby in the audience in her show.

The true test of a kid’s show is how much wiggle in restless bums. None here, just engagement and participation. As she relates the young lass’s misadventures after finding a wondrous book, she shares her beautiful voice, and captivates us all. Like all fairy tales, this one has a happy ending.

Everleigh and the Magic Book—Kids Venue

Being a witch is…the worst, when your mother is the Witch Queen and you can’t even manage to cast even the tiniest spell. Luckily, when Everleigh finds a magic book, she discovers all sorts of useful powers: talking to birds…making flowers bloom, and…turning her mother into a goose? Even though having a clucking waterfowl for a mother is fun at first, Everleigh’s quest to find the magic to rescue her mother is an unusual (and musical) adventure for the whole family.
