Additional Info

Follow Jack up the beanstalk once more in this zany, 45-minute musical romp! Times have changed though, and Jack faces new obstacles on his journey - like how to make his truck go without gasoline and how to stop his mother from selling off his precious video games! Jack learns sometimes you have to take a leap of faith, but that when you do, you have to be prepared for anything - like maybe, oh…a giant! But in this modern-day fable the giant isn't just some tall guy in the clouds. He's the C.E.O. of a “giant” farming corporation: Big Aggie Reaping Farms (B.A.R.F.). Through his battle with the Giant, Jack discovers that greed consumes itself, and that only through the help of our neighbors will we all prosper. Filled with comedy, puppetry, and lots of heart, Jack and the Soy Beanstalk plants the seeds of self-reliance, conservationism, and good ol' American ingenuity.
