Journey into the Appalachian Mountains in this award-winning musical that deftly weaves six traditional tales and original music into a keepsake quilt of mountain lore and wisdom for the whole family. Three "Jack tales" feature the resourceful, clever Jack who climbs a wonder-bean tree to find giants in the sky, who lands himself a job despite his foolishness and who wins the heart of Featherflight, the magical daughter of a devilish trickster. "Catskins" is a spunky Appalachian Cinderella, and "The Enchanted Tree" is a beauty-and-the-beast love story between a lost girl and a frightening crow.
Live music, provided by our Berean music students, which interweaves music throughout the tales, is inspired by "Old Time" Appalachian music that drives the play's action and makes music itself a character in the play.
