A NEW WORK BY CHIARA GUIDI
IN CO-PRODUCTION WITH JEFF STEIN, ERTH VISUAL AND PHYSICAL, CAMPBELLTOWN ARTS CENTRE AND INSITE ARTS
Darkness rules as this acclaimed Italian director and her Australian creative team explore the shadier side of the famous story of Jack, the mysterious stranger with magical beans, the ogre that lived high in the sky and the goose that laid the golden egg. Jack’s astonishing trip up the beanstalk is worth the price of admission alone in this wild musical production that will have children engrossed by its magical story-telling, stagecraft and laugh-out-loud moments. The kids (7+) will love it.
