Cuesheet 2014-2015 Season

Jack's Tale: A Mythical Mountain Musical Adventure

A world premiere Kennedy Center co-commission with Nashville Children’s Theatre

He’s not the Jack you may know from “Jack in the Beanstalk.” This Jack is based on the heroic character from the Scots-Irish “Jack Legends,” passed down by the early American settlers of the Appalachian mountains.

Four actors and four musicians tell and sing Jack’s story. Through voice, humor, and the toe-tapping, bluegrass music of the region’s mountain people, our young hero comes to life.
