'Beans Talk' Children's Show to Play Festival Park

Posted By on April 23, 2012

Appalachian State University brings their production of the ‘Beans Talk’ Children’s Show to Roanoke Island Festival Park in Manteo for two performances this Saturday, April 28th.

Read on for the official press release.

The headlines read, “Jack Spriggens Heroically Slays a Giant,” but is that what really happened? 

‘BEANS TALK:A Cow, Some Beans, and a Boy Named Jack’ by Derek Davidson is an original adaptation of a beloved folk tale. 

In this lively re-telling of Jack and the Beanstalk, the Cow is here to set the record straight.  It appears that our “hero,” Jack, has greatly exaggerated the truth.  How did poor Jack and his mother really turn their dried up farmland into thriving pastures and fields?  The audience gets in on the action to discover there is more to the giant, Mr. Bigg, than we’ve been told! 

Through this charming tale, audiences will learn that sometimes being a real hero means simply telling the truth and that working together pays off for everyone in the end. The Appalachian Young People’s Theatre uses song, dance, audience participation, simple sets, props and costumes to bring this timeless story to life.  BEANS TALK is appropriate for the entire family.

Tickets are $5 for adults and ages 6-12, while ages 5 and under are free.

Showtimes for this Saturday, April 28th are 10:30am and 7pm inside the Indoor Theatre at Festival Park.
