Stepping Out

The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales visits the Madison Theatre with parodies of beloved fairy tales

Coming Attractions


If you were about to be eaten by a hungry giant, how would you divert his attention to avoid becoming his afternoon snack?

Bring the kids and find out at the witty and wacky interactive children’s production, “The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales,” on Saturday, Nov. 3, 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., at the Madison Theatre at Molloy College.

Based on the award-winning book of the same name by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith, and adapted for the stage by William Massolia, the delightfully silly story revolves around Jack, who has successfully grown an enormous beanstalk, scaled to the top, and stolen a golden harp and gold-laying goose from the sleeping giant. The giant wakes and to avoid being eaten, Jack distracts his attention by telling his own versions of some very familiar fairy tales.

Tickets are $25, $15 children; available at (516) 678-5000 ext. 7715 or

Madison Theatre, Molloy College, 1000 Hempstead Ave., Rockville Centre.
