Page Series to bring classic fairy tales with warped twists to life Oct. 3 at SMU

WINONA, Minn. — Young and old alike will enjoy the Griffin Theatre Company performance of “
Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales” 
Thursday, Oct. 3, at Saint Mary’s University.

This Page Series production will begin at 6:30 p.m. in SMU’s Page Theatre.

Jack has a problem. He’s successfully grown an enormous beanstalk, scaled to the top, and stolen a golden harp and gold-laying goose from the sleeping giant. Things get a bit sketchy when said giant wakes up. Find out how old, slightly warped, fairy tales come to his rescue.

Over the past 22 years, the Griffin Theatre Company of Chicago has provided a wide range of work including world and mid-west premieres of acclaimed scripts, critically lauded productions of Shakespeare and original adaptations of novels.

Tickets are $14 for adults, $6 for seniors and students and are available online at or at the SMU Box Office, (507) 457-1715, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.

A “Gathering for Jack” will begin at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1, in the Winona Public Library Children’s Room. Enjoy some tall tales and fabulous shorts, and take a chance at winning tickets to the Oct. 3 performance.
