Jack and the Mexican Jumping Beanstalk

A delicious puppet retelling of “Jack and the Beanstalk” in which Jack climbs a giant beanstalk that sprouted from the Mexican jumping beans his mother tossed out of the window. He finds a castle in the clouds where he meets the kindly chef extraordinaire, Princess Penelope. After hiding Jack from her ogre father, she sends him home with an awesome lasagne dish. When Jack returns home, his suspicious mother wants to meet his new friend in the sky.
