Full of beans: Valley Center Stage hosts children's production of 'Jack and the Beanstalk'

Children ages four and up will be treated to Valley Center Stage’s “Jack and the Beanstalk”  onstage for two weekends.

The show is presented on Fridays, Feb. 24 and March 2 at 7 p.m., and Saturdays, Feb. 25 and March 3 at 2 p.m.

Join the funny Valley Center Stage players as they tell their version of the tale. They are interrupted by a magical being who helps the actors tell the story and involves the audience with activities that propel the story along.

Children in the audience are asked to help by playing rain and wind storms, potatoes, forests, snakes and whatever else is needed.

Some of the actors are veterans of other Valley Center Stage productions and two are newcomers to the theater. They are Robin Wallbeck-Forrest, Greg Lucas, Brandon Kinney and Lisa Bryant.

“This is our second show for young audiences,” says director Gary Schwartz. “Based on the success we had last year with the Emperor’s New Clothes, we hope to do more shows for kids in the future.”

Admission is $10 for adults, $7.50 for children.Tickets are available at
