Sunday, July 27

The Los Angeles Children’s theater is proud to presents its newest fairy tale production, Jack and the Giant. Based on the fairy tale classic, they bring this exciting adventure to life with a little modern twist. Sad and Happy take the audience on an adventure as they watch the story unfold. The story starts out as any Jack and the Giant story does, with the poor cow, Drusilla, having to be sold. However, Drusilla is a smart, beautiful and talented cow who is determined to stay with her best friend Jack however possible. A fun way to start your Saturday or Sunday by coming and answering questions, and seeing just how far Jack will go, and what Drusilla will try next. Will Jack sell Drusilla, for beans? What will happen if Jack climbs the beanstalk? What will the Giant do? Who will save the day? Come find out as you watch the exciting adventure take place before your eyes. Jack and the Giant will run Saturdays and Sundays at 11 am from July 12 – August 10 at the LA Little Theater, 12420 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90025. The opening weekend, July 12 & 13, is the special preview weekend and tickets are only $5!! All other dates the tickets are $10. Tickets can be purchased online at www.theblackboxtheater.org. You may also make reservations by calling 310-622-4482 and can pay for your tickets at the door with cash or check. Feel free to also sign up for our Arts & Crafts workshops, Saturdays at 1 pm June 28 – July 26 where we will make crafts inspired by Jack and the Giant, as well as crafts inspired by past and upcoming performances such as Pinocchio, Wind in the Willows, and Wizard of Oz.
