“The Giant, the Beanstalk and Jack” comes to the MACC
The Mountain Arts Community Center is putting its foot down. Forget overpriced Hollywood dramas or prepackaged DVDs. Instead, check out entertainment in its most basic form and, consequently, its best—just a man and his puppets.
Popular Atlanta-based puppeteer Lee Bryan has built a reputation that simply pitches him as “That Puppet Guy!” His rendition of a fairy tale classic, entitled “The Giant, the Beanstalk and Jack,” comes to the MACC on Monday, June 15 at 11 a.m.
It follows the timeless tale of a boy stumbling across magic beans, outwitting a Giant, grabbing the gold and saving his farm, but offers a contemporary spin with an energetic musical accompaniment.
Kids will be treated to a visual barrage of engaging rod puppets, hand puppets and shadow puppets, as parents sit back—and perhaps enjoy a little nostalgia while having some family fun without the all-too familiar buzz of electronics.
Bryan will also stick around after the show to meet guests and take pictures with his beloved cast of characters.
