Video: Jack and the Beanstalk trailer

The flash plugin is required to play this video.

 

When Jack sells his beloved Daisy the Cow for just five beans, it looks like he and his mother, Dame Trott, will lose everything. But little does he know that these are magic beans, and something strange is growing in the back garden. Hold your breath as the beanstalk grows bigger and bigger and Jack embarks on an adventure that sees him come face to face with Giant Blunderbore at his castle in the clouds.

Jack and the Beanstalk has all the ingredients of traditional panto – loads of comedy, catchy songs, audience participation and a happy ending – plus glorious puppets specially created by the Playhouse’s Associate Company, Stuff and Nonsense.

Ben Occhipinti, who directed our sell-out Stage ’65 productions of The Boy Friend, Oliver! and The Wizard of Oz, now turns to panto with this colourful show for all the family.
