Magic Tree House: Pirates Past Noon KIDS is an adaptation of Mary Pope Osborne's adventure books from the Magic Tree House book series. This time around, Jack and Annie's treehouse takes them to an exotic island with pirates, where the two discover the power of friendship and the simple pleasures in everyday life.
The two siblings 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 eighteenth-century Caribbean, the time of pirates! The siblings meet Captain Bones, 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.
The cast of 20 is comprised of the following young San Diego performers: Jackson Allen, Connor Bradshaw, Zoe Carnot, Gabriel Gerson, Lian Gilor, Tristan Heil, Sydney Kroonen, Graham Kroonen, Annabella Leos, Sophie Maretz, Finley McIntyre, Zoey Mendenhall, Richie Lynn Nguyen, Audie O'Neal, Ezra Ramirez, Luke Renner, Julia Van Skike, Joee Verdin, Soshian Wisner & Paulina Zepida.
