Jack and the Giant
“Jack and the Beanstalk” is based on an old English version of the story. Jack Spriggins trades his family’s cow for five colored beans. His long-suffering mother tosses the beans and they magically grow as tall as the sky. An amazing adventure ensues when Jack climbs to the top of the beanstalk and becomes a slave to the Cyclops Wife of the Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum Giant. A golden hen, a magic singing harp, a green fairy, and a fool add to the musical merriment.

MCM Bed Bouncing Time 2
“Merry Chris Mouse” is an original heartwarming story of sharing at holiday time.  A brown mouse family, homeless on Christmas Eve, moves into the wall of a child’s playroom. Dismayed at the sight of their disheveled home, mouse twins Christine and Christopher scamper into the child’s room to scavenge.  While exploring, they discover a tiny white mouse in a cage…plans for a rescue ensue!

Funny woman

“The Funny Woman Who Lost Her Dumpling” is based on a Japanese story.  A funny woman follows a rice dumpling down a hole and it bounces into another world. Following a road, she meets 3 statues of Jizo, who each warn her of danger. Unfortunately, an Oni (horned ogre) finds her and takes her captive. The funny woman uses humor and her wits to adapt to her changing situations. Funded in part with a Family Grant from the Jim Henson Foundation.
Brother Coyote_ SIster Fox_Cleotilde 2 chicken ,
“Brother Coyote and Sister Fox”, is a delightful and humorous adaptation of a Mexican folktale. Brother Coyote wants one thing and one thing only, to catch and eat one of Doña Conchita’s plump chickens. Quick-witted Sister Fox is always one step ahead of him, waiting to trick him with one of her clever schemes to keep all the chickens to herself! English, Spanish and yes…plenty of chickens! This show open at the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta in January.

All shows funded in part by 4Culture/King County Lodging Tax.
