JACK and the Beanstalk will be stopping off at a Staffordshire theatre next month.
The classic fairy tale is heading to the The MET Studio on Sunday, June 15 with lots of surprises, a gripping story and beautiful images as Jack sells his cow for five magic beans and finds himself in the land above the clouds.
