"Forget ghosts! We came here to look for Louis Armstrong, the King of Jazz."

On the eve of All Saints Day – the most haunted night of the year – beloved Magic Tree House characters Jack and Annie must find a young Louis Armstrong and put him on the path to becoming the king of jazz.

Featuring a live band, a cast of skilled performers, and a powerful message about dreams, race, and possibilities, this new jazz musical will transport audiences back to 1915 New Orleans, where the streets are filled with music – and the night is filled with ghosts!

ATTENTION: Due to the Festival of Trees event, there will be a high volume of guests parking in Loch Haven Park. Click here to view a map of additional parking and shuttle options.
