Winner of the 2008 Illinois Theatre Association’s award for excellence in children’s theater, Alphabet Soup Productions tickles youthful fancies with original theatrical productions. A modern retelling of the classic tale, Jack and the Beanstalk ensnares attention with high-energy song and dance and a thoughtful script whose lessons range far beyond the life-changing potential of itinerant legume salesmen. Flashy costumes delight eyes and pop-culture references engage clued-in kids with knowing winks. The show is intended for kids in pre-K through fifth grade, with morning performances perfect for busy caretakers or kids still coasting on a Kool-Aid-fueled all-nighter.
