This moral musical tale presents Jack, a ten year old bully at school who is taken on a journey through a dream that includes some of literature’s most famous “Jacks,” as he comes to realize that life choices can determine your successes or otherwise.
An exciting group of CSC students, alumni, and mentors are joined by three Broadway favorites: Moya Angela, Brian Sears and Abbie Mueller, along with student dancers from the Ballet Society of Colorado Springs, to present this musical tale that is a timely and relevant piece that will be great for audiences of all ages.
“Jack is going to be an awesome opportunity. A NYC based creative team is joined by three Broadway stars for this production. It will be absolutely thrilling to present this piece at the brand new ENT Center! The show was created as an anti-bullying platform and has expanded into something so special. It follows Jack, a young bully, who we find out is acting out because of some dysfunction in his family life. In a dream, he is visited by the ‘Jacks’ from the tales we all know – Jack Horner, Jack Sprat, Jack be Nimble, Jack & Jill, Jack Frost, and of course a beanstalk with a Giant. It’s a coming of age story with a fairytale twist!” says Josh Franklin, co- writer and Director.
“I am thrilled with what Josh has done to the original piece. His incredible songwriting abilities have really elevated the score and flow of the story…not to mention that I am simply humbled to work alongside him in bringing this story to life yet again, even better and with more great characters,” says Linda Weise, CSC CEO.
