Das Puppenspiel takes a step beyond the familiar Jack and the Beanstalk to present a series of tales handed down by storytellers over many years. Originating in England and later coming to the Appalachian region of America, The Jack Tales feature simple but clever Jack, who lands himself into all kinds of adventures in his travels. Large, beautifully crafted ‘bunraku’ style puppets and traditional folk music by professional folk musician and musicologist John Kirk combine to bring new life to this storytelling tradition. Come and be a part of the magic and fun as Beyond the Beanstalk re-introduces audiences to the American folk tradition.
All ages, especially recommended for ages 5-8.
TICKET PRICES : $10 children/20 adults; Members $8 children/16 adults
