Magicians, Mighty Mouse, Cinderella and more wowed scores of children and parents during the Northumberland Public Library’s Readers Theater performance on Wednesday August 5.
The performance, held in the Heathsville United Methodist Church, capped a free two-day workshop for kids of middle school age who signed up for it. The program began with the Hughes Brothers Magic Show. Seth Hughes and his brother Isaac, part of the What If…Wednesday Homeschoolers, wowed the audience with an assortment of magic tricks.
Dramatizations from several children’s stories, including ones featuring Cinderella and Mighty Mouse, rounded out the event. The program drew wows and applause from the audience and there was no doubt that a great time was had by all who came.
