Last December my friend Jeremy Woodward proposed we revive the puppet theater I built and have a family Pantomime at the neighborhood social all in West Barrington. Settling on Jack and the Beanstalk (because everybody knew it) – the brothers and sisters an in-laws started working on making it happen. My son made a great LED lighting grid.
