About

A world premiere Kennedy Center co-commission
with Nashville Children's Theatre
Jack's Tale:
A Mythic Mountain Musical Adventure
Book by Scot Copeland
Music by Paul Carrol Binkley
Lyrics by Paul Carrol Binkley and Scot Copeland
 
"Pretty is as pretty does," says young Jack--and that's just the kind of spunky no-nonsense outlook that sets him apart from his older brothers. So when Old King threatens to kick their mama off her mountaintop farm, fearless Jack sets out on a fantastic journey to talk some sense into the unruly ruler and settle up the deed! Along the way, Blue-Beard Giant and other intriguing characters equip him with a magic gunnysack, a fortune-telling pickle jar, and an enchanted axe. Can Jack chop down Old King's hackberry tree and win his daughter's hand in marriage? Or will he lose his head to Raggedy Bones just trying? Bringing together actors with a live, onstage bluegrass band, Nashville Children's Theatre Artistic Director Scot Copeland has worked with Nashville composer/musician Paul Carrol Binkley to tap into the old-time Appalachian "Jack Legends" from the Scots-Irish tradition. Interweaving a clever story with the region's toe-tapping musical traditions, this warm and delightfully authentic world premiere production is as sweet, dark, and rich as the soil from which it sprang.

For age 8 and up.

Performance Timing: 60 minutes, with no intermission.
