Jack and the Beanstalk
A story about sharing, welcoming others and discovering what's important in life.
A long time ago, the Giant came down the beanstalk -
one of the tiny people had lost a balloon and the Giant knew they would be sad.
But the tiny people were scared and didn't welcome the Giant who was told to "Go away!".
Now, the Giant keeps the clouds covered all the time to feel safe and not to think about the tiny people.
Down below the clouds, the sky is always covered.
Some people, like Jack, have never seen the stars or felt the warm sun on their face...
With puppetry, live music, comedy and lots of our innovative participation, we have versions tailored for EYFS, KS1 and SEND settings. There’s a Teacher’s Pack with classroom activities and resources as well of course!
Alongside the performance, we are also delighted to be able to offer a very exciting opportunity for schools to welcome poet Ruth Awolola for a one-off poetry writing workshop.
Feedback from the performances so far have included:
The children and all the staff really enjoyed it. Some of the least confident children were joining in with shouting, laughing and with the actions.

We all loved the performance of Jack and the beanstalk. From the moment we entered the ‘theatre space’ to the fabulous ending, the children were mesmerised. Staff were astounded by how well all the children stayed engaged.
