Theatre for Young Audiences Version
Jack and his adventures in the sky are given a splendid spin in the is family-friendly adaptation of the classic story.
Fee. Fi. Fo. Fum. We smell another wonderful fairytale brought to life by the Prince Street Players! JACK AND THE BEANSTALK is a splendid spin on the classic tale.
Needing money to pay the yearly taxes, Jack's mother instructs him to sell their cow. True to form, Jack winds up with a bag full of magic beans in exchange for the cow. The next morning, after planting them, Jack awakens to find a giant beanstalk, at the top of which lives one very scientifically minded Giant who has invented a plucky Golden Harp and a tap-dancing Golden Goose. Wackiness ensues as Jack tries to escape the magical kingdom!
Never failing to engage family audiences, this title is a lovely choice as both a main stage and children's production. Fresh, wacky and unexpected, JACK AND THE BEANSTALK twists and turns enjoyably from chipper opening song to delightful chase scene ending.
