December Specials at Harwich Junior Theatre

Friday, December 17th, 2010

Eric Rudisale stars as Jack and Lily Flores and Elizabeth Bent star as Buttercup in JACK AND THE BEANSTALK, a ribtickling musical holiday extravaganza by Dafydd Rees and Stephen Russell

Two for one special this Friday evening, Dec. 17 at 7:30 PM. Just call the box office at 508-432-2002 and mention this patron mail!

Rock ‘n’ roll classics mix with a storytelling style straight from the British Isles for an evening that goes from 0 to 60 JPMs (Jokes-Per-Minute) at the drop of a magic legume. It’s the old story about a boy (Jack) and a bag of beans (soon to be a beanstalk), a cow, a giant, an enraged French chef, a GPS with a mind of its own, the Village People, a suspiciously hairy older woman, a King, a Princess, and our brave and plucky lad’s not-so brave or bright sister. Houses will tumble, Pastries will crumble (they’re only made of paper maiché) and true love is here to stay. For all ages!

JACK and The BEANSTALK continues thru December 30 * Friday at 7:30 PM, Saturday and Sunday Matinees at 3 PM. Special vacation matinees on Dec 26 – 30 at 3PM
