Fort Bend County Libraries will present children’s theater performances of “Jack & the Beanstalk” at two locations to kick off the libraries’ annual Summer Reading Challenge, which begins May 29.
• Sienna Branch Library -- Friday, May 26, 2:00 pm
• George Memorial Library in Richmond -- Saturday, June 3, 10:30 am
This family-friendly performance by Young Audiences of Houston’s The Ensemble Theatre is adapted from the classic children’s tale about a boy named Jack who trades his best friend for three magic beans.
In this musical adaptation, Jack is a young boy who wants to be a hip-hop superstar, but he lacks enough self-confidence to take his gift seriously. He also has a hard time listening and obeying his mother. He encounters a huge problem that will require his undivided attention.
Made possible by a grant funded by Young Audiences of Houston, the performance is suitable for families with children of all ages.
The performances are free and open to the public. For more information, call the Sienna Branch Library (281-238-2900), George Memorial Library (281-342-4455), or the library system’s Communications Office (281-633-4734).
