The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales

Hilberry Theatre

Based on the book by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith and written by John Glore, The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales is a whimsical adventure. Though the characters may be familiar, each of your favorite storybook fables is uproariously derailed in this adaptation of Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith’s quintessential children’s book of fractured fairy tales. Everything from “Chicken Little” to “The Gingerbread Man” gets a complete makeover. Fun music and witty narration accompany the likes of ineloquent giants, sassy barnyard animals, colossal cow pies, and enough stinky cheese to go around.

Tickets are just $5 for children and $8 for adults.
Group tickets available to parties of 10 or more. Learn more.
