RRCC Presents Jack and the Beanstalk
Hilarious and Interactive Musical for Children

LAKEWOOD, CO - Red Rocks Community College (RRCC) Theatre Arts and Dance Department presents the fairytale Jack and the Beanstalk by special arrangement with Chicago Kids Company (book by Jesus Perez and Music and Lyrics by Paige Coffman), under the direction of Sean Dale, musical direction of Kelly Jo Eldredge, and choreography by Marilynn de Vries. This show for children of all ages runs on Saturdays July 9 through July 30 at the Red Rocks Community College Theater.

In this updated musical version of the classic fairytale, Jack and his best friend, Carmelita the cow, sing and dance their way through the story we all know and love—with a few entertaining twists.

Director, Sean Dale, says the play will be a great time for everyone. “It's a fun script. I know that the dialogue alone is sure to guarantee fun for everyone, and the music adds even more interactive hilarity.”

Innovative choreography by Marilynn DeVries also brings sparkle to the show. It’s a perfect family event on a hot summer afternoon.

Jack and the Beanstalk will be performed July 9, July 16, July 23, and July 30 at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. at the Red Rocks Community College Theater on the Lakewood campus of Red Rocks Community College (west end, lower level). Admission is $5.  Tickets may be purchased in advance online at www.tinyurl.com/RRCCTickets. Credit and debit cards are also accepted at the door.
