Auditions for Back to the Beanstalk


The musical that started it all for us at Young Actors Playhouse!

Jack’s village has been over run with rats and mice. In order to afford to pay the Piper to rid their house of the rats, Jack is forced to sell his beloved cow, PC. In a seemingly foolish gesture, Jack trades his cow for beans, the results of which sends him on an amazing adventure that would change his life forever!
