    PLYMOUTH — The Silver Center for the Arts at Plymouth State University hosts professional actors from the Papermill Theatre in Lincoln throughout the summer, presenting their repertoire of children’s stories adapted for the stage.
    Performances are 2 p.m. each Thursday. All seats (including babes in arms) are $6 and the shows usually sell out early.
    The production for June 27 is Jack and the Bean Stalk. Jack has fallen upon hard times, but between the help of a giant’s wife, a sassy beanstalk and an unwitting giant, Jack is able to reclaim fortune and make new friends along the way.
    Performances remaining this summer are:
    July 4 The Little Princess
    July 11 The Jungle Book
    July 18 Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
    July 25 The Hunchback of Notre Dame
    August 1 Rapunzel
    August 8 Just So Stories
    August 15 Hansel and Gretel
    The North Country Center for the Arts Children’s Theatre has been delighting audiences for more than 20 years, with original adaptations of fairytales and folktales produced and created for children of all ages. Shows are approximately 40 minutes long and appeal to adults, and children three years and older. Characters greet the audience in the Silver Center lobby after each show.
