I Sound Designed Jack and the Beanstalk at the New Wolsey Theatre in Ipswich. It’s a wirlwind of a show with integrated video elements and live actor musicians singing and playing the songs.
Join Jack’s adventure as we find that Dame Dolly Durden’s family farm has fallen on hard times – Squire Snuffbox is demanding the rent and Giant Blunderbore, with his wicked sidekick, Fleshcreep, is terrorising the land. There’s only one thing for it – Jack will have to sell their last remaining cow, Bessie. But when Jack comes back from the market with nothing more than a bag of beans it looks like the Durdens are done for. Then up pops Fairy Aubergine, up jumps a gigantic beanstalk and Jack is soon on his way up too, battling giants, rescuing the family farm and romancing the Squire’s spirited daughter, Jill.
Brought to you by the famous New Wolsey company of multi-skilled actor musicians, it’s the best of pantomime mixed with the best songs from the classic rock and pop playlist, including ‘Hit The Road Jack,’ ‘Lady Marmalade,’ ‘Get Offa My Cloud,’ ‘Go Your Own Way’ and many, many more. This glorious mash-up of pantomime and pop concert is a festive treat for all the family.
