Our giant adventure for little ones and their grown-ups is back!

Recorded on the Nottingham Playhouse stage last December, this charming production is filled with music, dancing and plenty of opportunities to join in.

When Jack sells his beloved family cow in exchange for three beans, his mother is extremely cross and throws them out of the window.

But these are no ordinary beans. These are magic beans!

In the morning, Jack awakes to find a huge beanstalk in his garden and soon discovers that it leads to an enchanting kingdom that’s full of surprises.

With golden eggs, a singing harp and one very hungry giant, Jack and the Beanstalk is perfect for ages 3 – 8. Rent the show today and make lasting memories with your little ones.

How it Works

Once you have rented Jack and the Beanstalk, you will receive an email with your e-ticket attached. This e-ticket will contain a link to the page on our website where the recording can be accessed. You will need to login to your Nottingham Playhouse account to view the video.

You will have access to the recording for five days. Please make sure you watch the show before the end of your rental period to make sure you don’t miss out.

If renting the show after Sunday 23 May 2021 please be aware that your rental period will be reduced as the recording must be taken down on Friday 28 May 2021. We, therefore, recommend renting early to enjoy the full five days access and to avoid disappointment.

If you don’t receive your e-ticket straight away after purchasing, please check your spam/junk folders.

If you are using a smart TV, you should be able to access the show through your browser. You can find help and advice on this and more on our FAQs page.
