Have you heard about Jack?
Come on, tell us a tale,
When you need a good story,
Jack never fails!
Prepare to be captivated by the enchanting world of “Jack!” — a mesmerizing musical that weaves together the essential elements of musical theatre and storytelling, creating a delightful hour-long interactive experience.
For as long as tales have been told, the character of Jack has been a constant presence in stories. Sometimes clever and cunning, sometimes lazy and foolish, but always coming out on top, fairy tales, folklore and nursery rhymes are full of tales of a lad named Jack.
Now, in this new musical for families and children, discover the truth behind the original fairy tale hero. Join Jack in his many guises as he seeks his fortune, finds the love of his life, learns the perils of a pail of water and, of course, takes on the fearsome giant.
Jack! features traditional stories, and original songs, and is performed by three actors/musicians playing piano, double bass and clarinet. With lots of opportunities to join in, families will be singing along before you can say Fee Fie Fo Fum!
