The magic of new friendship is as powerful as any spell — Just ask Ivy + Bean! Our two heroines couldn’t be more different. On one side of the cul-de-sac, there’s Ivy: Bookish and calculating, she’s a clever kiddo and witch-in-training. Just a few houses down, Bean is boisterous and bold, acting on her many whims and bravely taking on the world. Join these two adventurous girls as they form an unlikely friendship and help each other become intrepid explorers! Based on the hit book series, this Midwest Premiere musical from Emerald City Theatre will encourage young audiences to celebrate the unique qualities they bring to friendships!
