Giant Adventures Await in "Jack and the Beanstalk"
At MCCC's Kelsey Theatre May 21


4/29/11


West Windsor, N.J. -- A classic tale of adventure and family loyalty will be retold in a delightful new musical coming to Mercer County Community College's Kelsey Theatre. Kaleidoscope Theatre presents "Jack and the Beanstalk" Saturday, May 21 at 2 and 4 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on the college's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

In this charming adaptation, Jack sells the family cow for a few beans, much to the chagrin of his poor, widowed mother. In response, she angrily tosses them onto the garden. Overnight, the magical beans grow into a stalk that reaches the sky. Jack climbs it and discovers a strange land, where a cruel giant has amassed great treasures. Jack decides to steal some to help his destitute family. But at what price? Jack will look to the audience to help him defeat the giant and restore his mother's hopes for a brighter future.

Based in Providence, Rhode Island, Kaleidoscope Theatre was founded in 1977 to create and perform educational plays for young people. The company has toured from Maine to Texas and won numerous awards for its work, including Best Children's Theatre from RI Monthly magazine, the Rhode Island Theatre Achievement Award, and several awards from the Association of Retarded Citizens.

Tickets are $8 for children, students and senior citizens, and $10 for adults. Click here for online ticket purchases and for a video clip from the show. Tickets are also available by calling the Kelsey Box Office at 609-570-3333. Kelsey Theatre is wheelchair accessible.
