Slanted toward children of ALL ages, journey into the Appalachian Mountains in the award-winning musical that deftly weaves five traditional tales and original music into a keepsake quilt of mountain lore and wisdom for the whole family.
The musical play was the Winner of "The Parent's Guide Award for Children's Media" and "The Oppenheimer Toy Portfolio Award."
Two “Jack tales” feature the resourceful, clever Jack 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. The Enchanted Tree is a beauty-and-the-beast love story between a lost girl and a frightening crow. And in a zany, sing-through, The Sow and Her Three Pigs, plucky Nancy the pig outsmarts the hungry fox.
This musical play incorporates singing, mountain dances, music and giant puppets to create a highly theatrical, storytelling style. The score, which interweaves music throughout the tales, is inspired by old-time Appalachian music featuring fiddle and guitar that drives the play’s action and makes music itself a character in the play.
