Jack & The Beanstalk Friday 15 - Saturday 23 December 2017 Church Hill Theatre, Edinburgh
"Fee Fi Fo Fum", there's enormous fun in store for everyone except the poor villagers of Old Windy Bottom, one of Edinburgh's lesser known suburbs! They, along with our hero Jack, his mum Dotty Dimple, his brother Simple Simon and Buttermilk, their beloved cow, live in constant fear of Buster Gut-Bucket, the Giant, who lives in his castle above them in the sky and whom was magically created by the evil Witch Piccalilli.
Hearing the Giant has raised taxes once again, King Crumble the Umpteenth and Queen Apricot decide enough is enough and a reward for getting rid of the giant is announced. Will Jack take this chance to impress the girl of his dreams, Princess Charlotte? Will Snatchet and Scarper, the hapless henchmen, ever regret siding with evil by working for Rancid and the Witch? Will Simon get a good price at market for Buttermilk? If only there was a way for Jack to reach the castle in the sky - perhaps Fairy Sugardust may have an idea?
Come find out for yourselves - boo and cheer to your heart's delight in a festive-season treat for the whole family!
