Magic Play, a 2D fantasy comedy adventure that was mainly animated by director Natasha Canepa, centers around Wizard Boy, a studious yet shy kid who locks himself up in his room to study up on his magic. One day this boy is forced on a play date with his strange neighbor Witch Girl who decides to go crazy with her magic to make their time fun.

This film will be shown during this Saturday’s Free Family Film event that will occur in the yard behind Siblings’ Rivalry Brewery, which is located on 234 W King St in Strasburg.

With this location change, you can now bring a blanket, if you so wish. We will be starting at dusk, tentatively around 7 PM.
