Synopsis

This program is adapted for students and adults with cognitive disabilities.

An ordinary used book shop by day, A Likely Story becomes a magical place each night.  Thanks to a spell from the Book Fairy, the characters inside the books come alive each and every night.  Six of those characters — Dorothy Gale, Robin Hood, Pollyanna, Sherlock Holmes, Heidi, and Tom Sawyer — long to help Margie, the scatterbrained owner, save her struggling store.  But they’re not allowed to leave the building or be seen by human eyes.

So when a pair of bungling smugglers comes looking for a stolen necklace hidden inside one of the books, the characters are torn.  Should they warn Margie and risk disappearing forever?  Or can they find a way to defeat the crooks without being seen?
