Event Details

Performing at Chautauqua Park every weekend in June & also at Four Mile Historic Park in Denver on 6/27 on 6pm! https://www.fourmilepark.org/ 


Jack’s life is tough. He and his mother have no money, no food, a run-down house, and an opera-singing cow that won’t give milk. Just as he’s about to be sent off to an orphanage, Jack meets a mysterious stranger, who gives him three magic beans, along with an even more mysterious piece of advice that sets Jack climbing up a beanstalk and into the clouds. There, he meets a giant who would do anything to trade places with him. With the help of a wise-cracking hen and a self-absorbed cow, can all of their problems be solved?

Audience and actors meet at the Chautauqua Picnic Shelter and take a moderate hike on the Enchanted Mesa Trail while scenes from the play are performed along the way. Approximate length of the hike is two miles with an elevation gain of 400 feet.

Audience members are encouraged to bring camping chairs and/or blankets and mats to sit on while watching the scenes. Water, sunscreen and hats are suggested and comfortable walking shoes and weather appropriate clothing are strongly encouraged. In case of inclement weather, the performance will be held under the Chautauqua Picnic Shelter.

Buy early! Each hike is capped at low numbers and tends to sell out in advance.  Recommended for ages six (6) and older.


1 (Saturday) 11:00 am - 30 (Sunday) 1:00 pm
