What would you do if you found out where the most powerful book of magic ever written was hiding? Go after it, of course! A young Prince of Egypt does just that - only to find it guarded by some wily, funny, and very wise mummies who warn him of all the things that could go frightfully wrong if he takes and uses the book. Does he listen? Does he take it? Does he use it? Find out in this mystical, magical tale of Egypt.

Children's Museum Science @ TCT (FREE!)

We are excited to announce that The Children's Museum of Cleveland's creative, energetic staff will be at Talespinner Children's Theatre at 1PM, Saturday, October 1 for MUMMY-THEMED SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS before the 2PM performance of, The Mummies and The Magic Prince (A Tale of Egyptian Mythology).

The first, pilot installment of this program was before a performance of our tale of India this summer! Because of the frequent earthquakes in India, Kelsey helped young audience members engineer toothpick/gumdrop structures and test them against a Jell-O earthquake!

This time, she has an Egypt-themed expiriment in store for your youngster that is sure to PETRIFY and delight. Grab your tickets to the Oct. 1 performance and all other performances here.
