About the Show
Jackson Lane's 2022 Christmas show that is a contemporary adaptation of the famous fairy tale.
Jackie and her family have lived in terror of the giant living in the sky above their home. The fear that he might come down a beanstalk has been passed down for generations. But Jackie wants to find out the truth of his threat for herself.
With a show packed full of circus tricks and shadow puppets, be prepared to reimagine what you know about giants.
"The sense of peril here is more about whether the principals will pull off their variety set pieces than whether love will conquer all...More often there is magic, not just mockery...Such length. Such girth. Such pleasure."
"This beanstalk is arguably the most impressive thing about the show...Michael Harrison’s production hits every possible panto mark except one, and that’s actually making you feel something."
"When the audience holler, clap, and cheer their way through two and a half hours of unadultered joy, it doesn't matter if the story could actually be told in 10 minutes; this lavish pantomime delivers the goods."
