Winningstad Theatre: - adapt: John Glore; dir: Marcella Crowson.
It's happily ever laughter in these warped fairy tales. Jack has to use his wits to save himself from the terrible Giant, but a host of familiar fairytale characters keep messing up his plans-and then there's that annoying Stinky Cheese Man! Characters slide in and out of stories and nothing is quite the same as you remember it from classic fairytales in this stage adaptation of the book by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith. No character is safe from the silliness. There's Little Red Running Shorts, Cinderumpelstiltskin, and all the rest who make for a fun-filled musical that promises a gaggle of giggles for smart-alecks of all ages.
