Stocker Arts Center Presents “The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales”

Press Release
Posted January 30, 2018

Lorain County Community College’s Stocker Arts Center presents “The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales” at 9:45 and 11:45 a.m. on Thursday, February 8 as part of the Student Matinee Series at the Hoke Theatre of Stocker Arts Center.

“The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales” presented by the Griffin Theatre Company deconstructs the tradition of the fairy tale. Jack has got to use his wits to save himself from the terrible Giant, but a host of familiar fairytale characters keep messing up his plans—and then there’s that annoying Stinky Cheese Man! Characters slide in and out of tales, Cinderella rebuffs Rumpelstiltskin and Goldilocks meets the three elephants. The performance is based on the book by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith and is recommended for kids in preschool to grade three. To learn more about the presentation, visit
