About The Show…
Anna has the perfect present for Betsy Bailey’s birthday. Now if only she could tie the perfect bow… Come to think of it, Anna wants to do everything perfectly! And although nobody’s perfect, she isn’t one to take no for an answer. Her best friend Marley thinks trying to be perfect takes too long, and isn’t much fun. But when Anna meets a magician known as the Amazing M, she convinces him to cast a perfect spell, unleashing an afternoon of unexpected mayhem at Betsy’s party, where Anna and her friends discover the pitfalls of perfection, learn how to value differences, and find the courage to try new things – even if that means making a mistake.
