    About "Jack and the Beanstalk": Sent to the market to sell his old cow, Jack returns home with nothing more than a handful of beans. His mother is not impressed! Jack doesn't know where to turn, until the beans magically grow into a beanstalk, leading him up into the clouds. This hilarious retelling of the tallest of tales is filled with colorful scenery, whimsical puppetry, and several silly barnyard animals. Don't miss this giant-sized adventure!

    About the Performer: Jamie Keithline and Bonny Hall formed Crabgrass Puppet Theatre in San Francisco in 1982 and have delighted audiences across the nation with their whimsical humor and puppetry ever since. Their performing venues have included the Detroit Institute of Art, the Smithsonian, Paper Mill Playhouse, Tribeca Performing Arts Center, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. They have been awarded two Citations of Excellence from UNIMA-USA, the highest puppetry award in the United States, and in 2009, Bonny Hall was awarded a Design Commendation from the Arlyn Award Foundation. Since 2001, Jamie and Bonny have been living in Halifax, Vermont, a tiny town in the hills near Brattleboro, where they continue to create their award-winning productions.

    Mainstage performances are recommended for ages 3 & up. For more detailed recommendations, consult with Box Office Staff.
