Some strings attached
“JACK AND THE GIANTS”: 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday at the Columbia Marionette Theatre, 401 Laurel St. Giants are supposed to be big, mean, and nasty. They eat anyone who crosses their path. But Flinch isn’t like other giants. He’s constantly picked on by his bigger brothers for being sweet, caring and ... a vegetarian! When he sneaks away from his home, he befriends a poor young boy named Jack. Soon he’s found a new home, but his bigger brothers won’t let him go that easily. Tickets are $5.75.
