Jack and the Beanstalk at Greenwich Theatre, London (to 4 Jan)

Everything would be perfect for Jack and his Mum if it weren’t for the giant and his horrible henchman living in the castle in the clouds. Scaring everyone in the village and charging huge taxes, the giant even forces the King and his daughter Jill to pay up. It looks like the only way to pay the latest bill will be to sell Buttercup the cow, but even that seems destined to go wrong. Surely Buttercup is worth more than a handful of beans… Jack and the Beanstalk promises to be an all-singing, all-dancing, magical, musical, comedy treat for the whole family.
