Directed by Hunter Brown
Adapted for the Stage by John Glore
Based on the Book by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith
Junior Theatre’s 74th Season, 2021-2022
The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales
Though the characters may be familiar, each of your favorite storybook fables is uproariously derailed in this adaptation of Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith's quintessential children's book of fractured fairy tales. Everything from Chicken Little to The Gingerbread Man gets a complete makeover. Fun music and witty narration accompany the likes of ineloquent giants, sassy barnyard animals, colossal cow pies, and enough stinky cheese to go around.
Recommended for All Ages.
