Educating, entertaining, and enriching the lives of children through the magic of musical theatre
Founded by four musical theatre writers and actors, The Magic Forest Theatre Company's mission is to share curriculum-based stories and songs in a way that sparks imagination in young audiences. We create interactive, innovative, and original musical theatre experiences.
Collectively, as actors, we have performed over 500 shows for children and served over 4,000 children in the NYC metro area. As writers, we have had our musicals produced Off-Broadway, regionally, and internationally.
TESSA TAKES A TURN
Tessa the turtle is notoriously slow. Except for when it’s time to play one of her favorite activities. When it’s time to build with blocks or get crayons to color with, Tessa is as fast as lightning. And not great with taking turns and sharing with her friends. Follow Tessa as she discovers that everyone has more fun when we share and take turns.
NORA SAVES THE WORLD
Nora, a young raccoon, is on a quest to save animals who are endangered because of climate change. Through this interactive musical that takes us from Coney Island to Africa, we teach 3 everyday actions that young people can do to help reverse current environmental issues. Our story is specifically designed for two actors (a musician and a puppeteer) so that our show can easily travel to schools or community centers that may not have access to a traditional theatre space.
