Orlando Shakes Jack and the Beanstalk
Orlando Shakes Jack and the Beanstalk – Jack and the Beanstalk, a new musical by Michael Andrew, produced by Orlando Shakes in partnership with UCF, appears in the Margeson Theater from April 4 – May 4, 2019. Tickets ($10 – $20) are available now by phone (407) 447-1700 ext. 1, online through orlandoshakes.org, or in person at the John and Rita Lowndes Shakespeare Center (812 East Rollins Street).
Will you dare to reach new heights? From the urban jungle to the quaint countryside, Jack is well known for his sense of adventure – or at least in his daydreams. When it’s up to our hero to rescue new friends, his bravery will be put to the test. Amongst giants, mystery, and magic, join Jack on an exhilarating, musical escapade to a land above the clouds!
“It’s been exciting to create a new piece not only influenced by the musicals of the Golden Age of Broadway, but also influenced by the performers who’ll be playing these iconic roles,” playwright and composer Michael Andrew says. “I’ve create a song for a giant with a giant vocal range and for other specific qualities brought out by our talented cast.”
Jack and the Beanstalk features Terence Lee as Jack, Carlos Pereyo as Giant & Ensemble, Amanda Anne Dayton as Harp & Ensemble, Andy Hansen as Salesman & Ensemble, Alejandro Guevarez as Cow & Ensemble, and Alina Alcántara as Mom.
