Jack and the Beanstalk is revolutionary in touring pantomimes due to the new fantastic designed sets this year. The show starts outside Jack's cottage, but when he sells Nellie the cow for a handful of magic beans, a huge beanstalk grows right up into the sky.
As Jack climbs the beanstalk the stage morphs into the foreboding giants castle.
In the castle Jack meets a beautiful princess who, because of her beautiful singing voice, has been turned into a harp so that she plays music for the giant whenever he wants.
Then one of the huge doors opens and the giant enters. He stands at just under 3M tall and is completely animated. This beautifully designed costume/puppet really is the star of the show!
We have two versions of the show available. The full show with large sets and staging lasting for 2 hours with interval. The shorter version which runs for 60 mins, suitable for schools and for small venues etc.
Jack & the Beanstalk is very visual with interchangeable sets and the scenes change magically taking us from Jack's cottage to the foreboding castle of the giant. The costumes are as vibrant as ever and there are several surprises in store.
Naturally the show is full of topical jokes and sillyness appealing to children and family audiences. There is magic and puppets together with comedy songs and routines.
