    The Musical Book, Music and Lyrics by Scott Elmegreen

    Based on the Books by Annie Barrows

    Come meet quiet Ivy, who has amazing ideas, and outgoing Bean, who loves to put ideas into action. The mischievous second-grade heroines of The New York Times best-selling stories will be plotting their exploits onstage in this lively musical. Seven-year-old Ivy is quiet and loves to read books, especially books about magical spells. Bean is outgoing and would love it if the whole world knew who she is. When the two of them get together, there’s mischief and laughter at every turn—along with lessons to be learned about the challenges and joy of family, friendship, and love.
