Jack at Campus West in Welwyn Garden City


A TREAT for children during half term is on at Campus West in Welwyn Garden City tomorrow (Wednesday).

HAVE you ever taken a story out for a walk?

Have you watched, fascinated, as giants and dancing magic beans and a particularly friendly cow all come together to make a magical hour of entertainment?

No? Then you haven’t seen Rod Burnett of Storybox Theatre telling the story of Jack.

Forget panto – this is the tale of Jack, and his beanstalk, as you have never seen it before.

With a Celtic harp, Irish bodhrán and tabletop puppets, Rod tells a story of enchantment and magic, of cruelty and humour, ingenuity and triumph over gigantic adversity.

Designed and created as a show to promote creative thinking, Jack is a rare treat from an internationally renowned storyteller.

Using the intimate surroundings of the Hawthorne Studio in WGC, Jack is a magical, enthralling and entertaining production from a brilliant puppeteer.

And taking a story out for a walk?

Well, that’s the term Storybox use for when a story is told again, when the audience go home and retell it for their own pleasure.

Jack is on at Campus West on Wednesday at 2.30pm.

Tickets cost £8.
