About This Project
Jack, the youngest son of the King of Ireland, was never thought to be brave or heroic, certainly not like his two older brothers who were very much favored by their father. But Jack finds his own strengths as he opens his eyes and ears to those around him. When a Wise Old Man offers him a golden shamrock, he quickly learns that its magical powers bring him whatever he NEEDS. It is only when this shamrock is suddenly lost, that he truly discovers what it is to be a hero! Audience members are critical to Jack’s journey – he needs them! Who else could throw the bad guys in the dungeon or be on the lookout for a ferocious dragon, or tame a swarm of angry buzzing bees?
