BRUNSWICK — Maine State Music Theatre presents Jack and the Beanstalk on the Pickard Stage on Wednesday, June 15. Performances are at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.

There will be a special showing at 11 a.m. Saturday, June 18.

Children of all ages are welcome.

The beloved children’s tale follows a young boy named Jack who is forced to sell his only pal, Angus the Cow. In this fractured fairytale filled with bovine best friends, imprisoned harpists, hungry mothers, pining giant spouses, rapidly descending behemoths and a boy whose dreams are as big as the sky, we learn that if you believe, anything is possible.

The book, lyrics and music for the production were created by director/choreographer Marc Robin and Artistic Director Curt Dale Clark. Clark will direct and choreograph the show.

The cast of seven is comprised of local actors and University of Southern Maine students. Leading the tale is Eric Berry Sandelin of Gorham as Jack; Taylor Gervais of Gorham as Gus the Cow; Ali Sarnacchiaro of Westbrook as Carlotta; Matt LaBerge of South Portland as the Giant; Rachel Grindle of Portland as Miranda; Cameron Wright of Ellsworth as the Mysterious Man; and Molly Keane of Raymond as Ogra.

Tickets range from $10 to $15. They are available online at, by calling 207-725-8769, or at the box office at 1 Bath Road.
