Beanie and the Bamboozling Book Machine, by Bob May, Christopher Tibbets, and Roy C. Booth

The Theatre Arts Department presents Beanie and the Bamboozling Book Machine, a children's theatre production.  Beanie Boren may be a science wiz, but he's not too keen on reading books!  He designs a reaching machine for the science fair, that unfortunately, is neither user-friendly nor free of bugs.  When Beanie turns it on....well, come to the show and see the chaos he creates!
