The story starts long, long ago in a poor village with a birth. A fortune teller predicts that the baby will marry the princess. When the King gets word that a peasant child will someday usurp him, he sets out to stop fate. Alas, his plan goes terribly wrong. With the help of forest robbers, Jack grows up to marry the princess, but not before he completes a set of challenges, including plucking three hairs from the devil’s head.
Town Schools Theatre is a partnership between the New England Youth Theatre (NEYT) and Academy, Green Street and Oak Grove. Students from each school came to NEYT for a free after school program to learn theatre skills and rehearse this play. NEYT has led outreach programs at each school, but the principlas had the idea to create a unified program so that all students in the public elementary schools can have equal arts opportunities. The program is for students in 4th, 5th and 6th grades.
