PASTA Online Theatre Class for the Virtual Stage

We are offering a three-session class featuring Jack and the Beanstalk.

 Jack and the Beanstalk is a very funny re-telling of the classic fairy tale. In this play, Jack must trick his cow, Buttercup into going for a walk to the marketplace where he plans to sell her. When Jack trades his cow to an old woman and an old man for a few magic beans, Jack’s mother is furious! The next day, a giant beanstalk appears in their yard and Mother hires three lumberjacks to cut it down, unaware that Jack has climbed it. Up in the clouds, Jack has to deal with the giant and his goose that lays the golden eggs.  While back on the ground, it’s up to the old woman and the old man to save Jack before he is stuck in the clouds with the giant forever.

The class runs Monday, June 22, Wednesday, June 24 and Friday, June 26.

Each class session will run from 4:00 to 5:00 PM.

Please note:  It is extremely important that all participants be very good readers.

Ages: 8 to 14
