'Jack and the Beanstalk' opens tonight
PLYMOUTH — More than 50 local children make up the cast of this weekend’s Jack in the Beanstalk performance from the Plymouth Missoula Children’s Theatre. Organizer Donna Georgen said that she appreciates being a part of Missoula because each year’s productions are so appreciated by the children and the community.
“One of the things that has been so appealing about bringing Missoula to the area every year is that the tour directors are always prepared and the kids love it — they could do it all summer long,” said Georgen.
Tour directors for this year’s performance are Valerie Stevens and Jessica Mathis, and the two have been working extensively with the cast for the past week to put together the program. The show opens tonight, and there will be a second performance Saturday night. Both performances begin at 7 p.m. and will be held at Menominee Elementary School. Admission is $6 for adults and $3 for children 12 and younger.
