May 1 - 3, 2009
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 America and
the Appalachian region, "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 combine to bring new life to this storytelling tradition. Come
and be part of the magic and fun as "Beyond the Beanstalk" re-introduces
American audiences to a part of their cultural heritage!
