American Idol season nine alum Siobhan Magnus returned to the beloved musical of her youth this week.

The Barnstable, Massachusetts native performed for the Summer Family Theatre production of The Reluctant Dragon, singing a recorded version of the play's central ballad, "Someday."

The Idol favorite took part in a previous version of the play in 2011, in honor of Barnstable high school drama teacher, John Sullivan, who retired that year. For that performance, which featured many of Sullivan’s former students, Magnus played the more grown-up role of the wife of a greedy innkeeper. The original play, written in 1898, has been adapted steadily by Sullivan since he first staged it in 1988.

This week, the 23-year old singer appears in a proper video singing the show’s sweet and hopeful "Someday," composed by Andrew Rapo with lyrics by Clayton Stang.

It's a song Magnus can get behind, especially the verse, "I wished upon a shooting star / To be someone who travels far."
