Jack and the Beanstalk description

Jack and the Beanstalk is one of the best-loved children’s stories of all time. It stars a small boy, his mum, a cow, two giants and an immense beanstalk. And it is this year’s Christmas panto spectacular at the London Palladium, a venue famed for its festive fun, usually a sell-out and always magnificent. This £2 million production stars an immense animatronic giant, awesome effects, spectacular costumes, amazing choreography and more thanks to a talented creative team. And the actors are all experienced panto stars.

What's the story of Jack and the Beanstalk?

Jack and his mother are dirt poor, almost starving, with no money for food. It’s time to sell their cow. Jack takes her to the market, but on the way he meets a stranger carrying magic beans. Jack swaps the cow for the beans and goes home, where his mum is furious with him. The beans are hurled out of the window and Jack is sent to bed in disgrace. The next morning there’s a huge vine outside, reaching up into the sky. Jack climbs it. At the top there’s a castle belonging to a giant and his wife. They’d like to eat Jack but he escapes, bringing some of their treasure with him and cutting the vine down after him.
