Fee-fi-fo-fum – I smell the socks of a Scarborian!
As always SJT didn’t disappoint…
The SJT adaptation of Jack and the Beanstalk was hilarious, quirky and appealing to all ages. As with previous performances, there was lots of audience participation which the kids loved….we even managed to make the weather!
The story is brilliant and great fun. Both kids loved it – a big thumbs up!
The Beanstalk coming from the entrance up to the top floor was amazing and crept around with you throughout the theatre!
Eliza (age 6) was captivated by the growing of the beanstalk because it was exciting.
“My favourite character was Enrique also known as Janet, who was a hen with moves. She was great fun and hilarious.” – SJ
“My favourite character was Mrs Pecksniff with her book of Giantology. Did she end up in bone bread? Who knows! Wait and see….” – (Henry, 9)
Follow Jack on the adventure to find out if the giants are as scary as the rumour suggests.
They reckon a giant has built a castle above the coastal clouds of Scarborough. A terrible giant. Meaner than mean and nastier than nasty.
He ate the Easter Bunny! Used the Tooth Fairy as dental floss! He’s going to kidnap Santa! He has to be stopped!
It’s all rubbish of course. Jack started the rumour by accident, but since he seems to know more about this monster than anyone else, he’s the obvious choice to head up that weird beanstalk he grew in the garden, above the clouds and destroy the beast!
No problem, thinks Jack. Go up the most unpopular kid in school; come down a hero. After all, it’s only a rumour. Isn’t it…?
The SJT is returning to full capacity for most performances of Jack and the Beanstalk, but for the comfort of those who prefer it, nine performances – roughly two shows a week – will stay at social distance – full details can be found on the SJT website.
3 December – 31 December 2021. Tickets, priced from £10, are available from the box office on 01723 370541 and online at www.sjt.uk.com
