ABOUT THE SHOW
This all-new musical version of the classic tale will delight children and adults alike withĀ its upbeat attitude, clever comedy, and Broadway-style songs. The wacky cast ofĀ characters includes the troubled titular character (Jack), an overworked and underpaidĀ Golden Goose, and a diminutive Giant with an enormous Napoleon Complex!

With a sparkling new script and score by award-winning writer-composer Ron Lytle (theĀ Bay Areaā€™s most prolific creator of new musicals), and direction by Sue Ellen NelsenĀ (whose many honors include directing the San Francisco Chronicleā€™s #1 Show of theĀ Year), JACK AND THE BEANSTALK promises to be must-see entertainment for theĀ entire family!
