‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ coming up
MARQUETTE — On Saturday, the Peter White Public Library will present “Jack and the Beanstalk” as part of its “Once Upon a Time” puppet show series performed by actors of the Vertigo Theatre Company.
There will be two performances: one at 1 p.m. and another at 2 p.m. in the library’s Community Room on the lower level.
This English fairy tale first appeared in 1734, entitled “The Story of Jack Spriggins and the Enchanted Bean.” It was popularized in 1845 by Henry Cole in The Home Treasury, and in 1890, Joseph Jacob published the most common version in his English Fairy Tales.
On Saturday, the performers of Vertigo Theatre will lend their own, often humorous, spin to this tale.
There is no admission charge thanks to sponsorship by the Friends of the Peter White Public Library.
