The Deegan Children’s Theatre at the Spencer Community Theatre concludes its 27th season with the kid production, “Magic Tree House: Pirates Past Noon Kids.” The youth showcase debuts at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, with the opening night performance followed by an ice cream social. Additional shows begin at 7:30 p.m Friday and Saturday with a 2 p.m. Sunday matinee.

Based on the fourth book in Mary Pope Osbourne’s beloved adventure series, “The Magic Tree House,” this play is perfect for the entire family. In this adventure, siblings, Jack (Sean Connor) and Annie (Lexi Duffy) return to visit the magic tree house on a dreary, rainy day. They find a book where the sun is shining and the waves are crashing, so they wish to travel to this tropical place. They realize that they are in the 18th century Caribbean, the time of pirates. The siblings meet Captain Bones (Zoe Carlson), a mean old pirate who captures the two and forces them to help him find buried treasure. It's up to Jack and Annie to find their way back to the tree house and make their way home.

“Magic Tree House: Pirates Past Noon Kids” is sponsored by the Clay County Fair and opens at the Spencer Community Theatre tonight and runs through Sunday.

“The Magic Tree House: Pirates Past Noon Kids” is directed and choreographed by Kinsey Gregg, with music directed by Leah Jordan. It includes a large cast of the area’s young acting talent.
