Jack and the Bean Stalk

The Wild Swan Theater did a fabulous job retelling the traditional story, Jack and the Bean Stalk, and we were there to see it.

In one hour, the children in the audience ran through the full gamut of emotions as they sat on the edge of their seats hoping the Giant wouldn't discover Jack, cheered for Jack as he ran through the audience trying to get away from the Giant, roared with laughter at the Giant mixing up his lines saying: "Fee Fi Fo Fum, I smell my stinky feet", and signed with relief when Jack made it safely home to his mother.

As we were leaving the theater, we meet Jack and the Giant in the lobby. What a thrill to meet them in person.

The show brought a familiar story to life and let the children experience the magic of theater.
