BRAVO KIDS: Jack & the Beanstalk

Les Gove Gymnasium, 910 Ninth Street St.

Buy Tickets Online

In real life, Jack is frightened of everything except the adventures in his head. But when given the choice to stay home and dream or explore the world a giant beanstalk has to offer, Jack decides to climb the beanstalk and have a real-life adventure of his very own. Follow Jack’s fanciful journey where a handful of beans really can produce magic, a goose really can lay a golden egg, and a beanstalk does indeed reach into the heavens where an immortal giant lives! StoryBook Theater’s musicals are 55-mins geared to ages 3-10. Based on familiar fairy tales, each show focuses on a life lesson and has a happy ending. With catchy songs and clever stories, Jack & the Beanstalk is fun for the whole family!

Husband and wife Jessi and Jared Fredeen tear up stages and crowds nationwide with their unique upbeat, roller coaster style shows. They fire off gypsy-punk rock songs alongside everything from intimate tear-jerkers to anthemic foot-stompers, and pepper their sets with compelling stories behind their music. Champagne Sunday is a rare original act that performs with stadium-level energy, regardless of whether it’s for a festival crowd, a club, a or group of coffee shop patrons. With a show that packs the power of an entire orchestra, Jessi and Jared have created a sound that is totally unique, fun, emotional, and captivating. This act has a ton of showmanship, heart, and talent that make it a powerful musical experience.
