Jack and the Beanstalk Auckland Arts Festival

Event Details

Auckland Arts Festival has been forced to cancel a small number of shows and events in this years festival, including Jack and the Beanstalk, which was scheduled for Fri 12 – Sun 14 March. Ticketholders will be refunded and no action is needed.

Featuring no ordinary Jack and no ordinary beanstalk, this madcap family show brings a giant ant, a crazy chase, the Sky Tower, an alien invasion and a lovesick villain into the fairytale fold for an outlandish and joyous theatrical trip. You’ll be splitting your sides!

See Jack climb the beanstalk! See Jill come tumbling down! See Jack get told off by his mum!

Hailed by the entire parliament as a literary masterpiece, this outrageous all-singing, all-dancing show will thrill you with its spills, stun you with its things that stun people and amaze you with its amazingness.

Featuring Maureen the Cow, Grand Poobah Thespian Michael Hurst as Jack’s mad mum, and a cast that’s full of beans, Jack and the Beanstalk is an all-in, off-the-wall adventure, a no-holds-barred theatrical delight that will have kids, mums, dads and cousin Janine from Taihape on the edge of their slapstick seats.

Watch a love of theatre sprout in your children overnight. Climb on and join the fairytale adventure.

Recommended for ages 4 years plus.
