in association with

Jackie and the beanstalk

Once upon a time, in a back garden not too far from here, Jackie and her Grandad Jack love to share tales of giants, castles and magic.  That is until Jackie's adventure takes a turn for the worse. How can she tell stories to make her garden grow now that Grandad has gone? Then one day something quite out of the ordinary happens… a beanstalk appears!


An original story full of adventure, laughter and growing up. Watch Curly Tales' brand new production for 3 – 8 year olds and their grown-ups, featuring original live music, songs and puppetry.


Our 2019 tour is in association with Leeds Playhouse and supported by Arts Council England, Barnsley Civic, ARC Stockton and Leeds Inspired. Our original R&D in 2016, was supported by Leeds Playhouse and HOME theatre.
