Jack and the Beanstalk
Jack's mum wants to sell his cow… for cash not beans. But Jack has other ideas. Will Jack escape from the Giant's castle? Will he get the Golden Hen? Only Sitara has the answers….
Sitara combines table top puppetry and live action with its usual mix of magic, music and fun. Puppets and masks by John Barber; written, directed and performed by Emma Davies with the Sitara team.
There are different versions of this show
Our premises based ‘Jack and the Beantstalk’ has an Early Years and Primary version - for 3-5 year olds or 5-11 year olds; for 50-80 children. Your students will have the sense of occasion of visiting a theatre while you will have the security of knowing only your staff and students will be in attendance
AT YOUR SCHOOL
The touring version of the show is slightly shorter (and more portable!) and is aimed at 3- 8 year olds only. This intimate theatre experience is for groups of 25-45 students and can be booked class by class for those schools worried about activities in large numbers.
PLUS A GLOVE PUPPET-MAKING KIT
For a very small increment, Sitara offers the school the option of including an individual puppet-making kit per child together with a teacher's guide on how to make the puppet PLUS a step by step workshop plan for teaching children how to operate their puppets - written by Emma Davies and John Barber
Sitara offers Shakespeare to your school using their usual dynamic approach. Following a drama workshop with a brief look at status, soundscape and some verse, Emma Davies leads the students through the dark tale of a good king gone bad. With a bone-chilling soundtrack and set, costumes and shadow puppets designed by John Barber, this interactive story-telling will be an unforgettable introduction to the great English playwright. Performed by the Sitara Team and your students…….
For groups of 40-80 students, aged 8-14
AVAILABLE FROM FEBRUARY 2010
