The Magik Theatre has staged a production of Jack and the Beanstalk more than 150 times at over 250 schools across all of Texas. Students probably saw this wonderful production at school and can now tune in with their families to watch Jack and the Beanstalk together.
This online streaming is supported by Union Pacific and Whataburger who help the Magik Theatre tell the tale of Jack trading his best friend for three magic beans and the trouble that ensues after it. Jack’s trade is followed by a high-altitude adventure that leads him into the home of an angry giant. Jack is eventually able to learn that friendship is a greater treasure than magic beans or all the gold he could ever want. As families search for fun and safe activities to celebrate the 4th of July, The Magic Theatre attempts to provide fun and safe ways to enjoy local theatre.
