A Giant for Jack in Shelby County


Jack and the Giant will take place on Sept. 13, 14, 20, and 21 at 7:30 p.m. each night. Matinees are to happen on Sept. 15 and 22 at 2:30 p.m. each day. All performances are to happen at Shelby County Community Theatre, located at 801 Main Street in downtown Shelbyville.

Tickets for each show are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors 62 and over, and $10 for students. Due to limited seating, reservations are highly recommended and can be done by calling the Shelby County Community Theatre at 502-633-0242.

Jack and the Giant is a youth musical retelling of the classic story Jack and the Beanstalk. Children ages 7 to 14 engage in the telling of Jack getting magic beans, watching the stalks grow, and literally climbing into a world bigger than he ever dreamed. 

Within a big world, though, comes an angry giant that is none too pleased to have humans like Jack in the house.

James Ray Morgan directed Jack and the Giant, which Vera Morris and Bill Francoeur created.

Following Jack and the Giant, Shelby County Community Theatre will present the Christmas classic A Christmas Carol.  More information on both shows can be found at the Shelby County Community Theatre website.
