The middle school students of St. Mary’s School, Sycamore, will retell the story of Jack and the bean stalk, in a performance of “Fee, Fi, Fo, Fum!” The show, directed by Alice Fisher, will be performed at 7 p.m. May 2 and 3 in the St. Mary’s Parish Activity Center, 244 Waterman St., Sycamore.
Two village women (Katie Banasiak and Kaitlin Jacobson) take pride in telling Jack’s mother (Elise Conrad) that they are to be evicted by High Sheriff DumDum (Danny Earl). The Troll (Samantha Salapatek) takes great delight in demanding payment for her boss, the giant (Alison Coovert). The chicken (Robby McCarthy) doesn’t want to be part of the giant’s dinner and runs away, with the troll hot on his tail.
Princess Tulip (Olivia Schramm) is doing everything she can to free her mother, Good Queen Violet (Libby Swedberg) from the clutches and dinner plate of the giant. Will she be alone in her attempts or will Jack, Emilio Arroyo, come to her rescue?
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for ticket purchases. Tickets cost $5 for adults, $3 for students in first through 12th grade and are free for ages 5 and younger.
