    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.

    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.
