  • Jack and the Beanstalk • March 19 - May 3

    Fe-fi-fo-fum.  A timely version of the classic children’s tale about the young lad that doesn’t know beans about trading, but still manages to climb his way to the top.  Jack finds that happiness lies in helping others rather than mere personal gain.  Told with rod puppets and some surprising twists, Jack has long been a favorite of our audiences.
