Playtime Poppy Presents: Jack and the Beanstalk

Apr 19th - 5:00 pm

2205 Forest Drive SE Cedar Rapids

Jack is a nice kid who tries to do the right thing. He and his mother live a very meager existence, but they do the best they can. The day comes when Jack must sell his cow – who also happens to be his best friend – and things get very difficult. Jack meets two strangers on his way to market who con him into trading the cow for magic beans. His mother thinks they are worthless and tosses them out. Little do they know that they will grow into an immense beanstalk that leads to the sky, or that Jack will meet the two strangers again who will con him into stealing from the Giant in the sky. The rest of the story is pure gold – a bag of gold coins, a golden singing harp and a goose that lays golden eggs. Will Jack and his cow ever be reunited? Will the strangers get Jack into trouble with the Giant? You’ll have to come to Jack and the Beanstalk to find out!
