Students from Kyabram P-12 College are ready to put on the giant show of the year with Jack and the Beanstalk.May 22, 2014 3:30am
Let’s get one thing straight.
The local ‘Giant’ Tim Richards is not a bad character.
Opening night of Kyabram P-12 College’s production Jack and the Beanstalk is tomorrow, and patrons will realise quickly that Giant Blunderbore is actually a whacky inventor, not the man-eating version of our nursery rhymes.
Almost 70 students from Grade 6 to Year 12 have been rehearsing for months for the estimated two-hour-long musical retelling of the giant’s quest to lure innocent Jack to buy his Magic Beans.
The principal cast comprises Brandon Armstrong (Jack), Olivia Partridge (Mrs Sprague), Connor Deakin (the Baron), Shania Manoel (the Baron’s sidekick), Timothy Richards (the Giant), Claudia Appel (the Housekeeper), David O’Brien (The Assistant), Cointha Walkeden (The Golden Harp), Daniel Walkeden (The Golden Goose) and Alex Si and Skye Duffy (Betsy the Cow).
To add to the excitement, children are being invited to wear their pyjamas and as a reward will receive a handful of beans — actually, lollies.
Jack and the Beanstalk will run from tomorrow through to Saturday from 7
Tickets cost $15 for adults, $5 for primary aged children and $10 student/concession $10, and can be purchased from Kyabram P-12 College’s main office or at the door on the night.
