The Roanoke Children’s Theatre presents Jack and the Wonder Beans. In an Appalachian setting, the classic Jack and the Beanstalk is enhanced by traditional folk melodies and audience participation. All is well for Jack and his Mam. They have their home, a roof, a patch of land, and a cow.


One spring, when the cow goes dry, life on Wolfpen Creek has to change. In hard times no one wants to buy a cow "dry as a hat." Jack trades his bossy to a Gypsy for "seeds"—and Jack is in for trouble. His adventures with the High Tall Giant Woman and her husband teach him that "the simple life is right for Jack."

$5 or one Flex Pass credit (but, seriously, the $5 is the better deal). As you might expect, we incur some ticket-issuance fees, which we pass on to you. That’s all explained in this fine print.
