Jack and the Giant Beanstalk

This is Jack as you’ve never seen him!  Yes, he trades his old cow for some beans and climbs the stalk to the giant’s home in the sky.  But wait until you hear the rest.  The giant has a wife, who really is tired of her husband’s fe-fi-fo-fumming.  The chicken that lays golden eggs has anxiety issues. The guitar in the corner is singing for her life.  And what about Jack’s father—the black-eyed man who was lost at sea?  Rumor has it there’s a captive in the giant’s dungeon. What if his eyes are black?

SCR’s Junior Players, chosen by audition after at least two years in the Theatre Conservatory, portray all the characters in this wonderful twist on Jack’s story—including his rabble-rousing friends, who have the imagination to believe in his dream.
