Rupert Kittay Library Presents "Jack and the Beanstalk"

RUPERT — The Rupert Kittay Library is pleased to host again this year the acclaimed "No Strings" Marionette company.

Families and children of all ages are invited to celebrate the season and enter the wonders of traditional puppet theater with the performance of "Jack and the Beanstalk". This classic show will be offered on Friday Dec. 1 at 7 p.m. at the Rupert Firehouse. The firehouse is located on Route #153 in the center of Rupert.     

Come experience this well-loved tale from Britain, retold with all the magic and mischief our marionettes can muster! Marmalade the cow's appetite drives the action from Jack's humble cottage to the magnificent castle high above in the clouds. With a nod to an ancient telling of the tale, we discover if Jack, by taking gold and geese from the giant's castle, is a thief, or simply reclaiming his family's heritage. The stage is hardly big enough to contain the one of a kind hand-crafted marionettes, let alone the ravenous, rummaging Giant. A sense of adventure, optimism and three magic beans catapult Jack high into the sky where his destiny awaits.

You'll be thrilled by the unexpected twists in this exciting production, which is tremendously suitable for people of all ages.
