Jack and the Beanstalk: The Panto
A Tradition for the Entire FamilyWritten by Caroline Smith
Nov 28 to Jan 6
St. Jacobs Country Playhouse
Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum, a giant panto your way comes!
Bring the entire family and cheer for Jack and boo the evil giant as one of the most popular children’s stories of all time becomes larger than life.
Jack and his mother are down on their luck and they need to make money fast. But when Jack takes their beloved cow to market, all he gets for her are a few measly beans. But these are no ordinary beans... they're magic! When Jack wakes to find a gigantic beanstalk in the middle of his mom's garden, a wild adventure begins. The brave young lad climbs to the top above the clouds where he finds an enormous castle, an enchanted harp, a feisty princess in need of rescue... and a giant with an even bigger appetite!
Filled with popular music, lively dancing, outrageous costumes, audience participation and more, Jack and the Beanstalk is a fun-filled adventure for audiences of all ages.

- Waterloo Region Record: "Playwright, Caroline Smith, is responsible for taking this old fairy tale and jazzing it up, incorporating humour that is locally targeted. Politicians are often the brunt of the jokes and there are stabs at local issues like the delay of new LRT trains." Read the full review here.
