Jacqueline and the Beanstalk
Who’s Jack? TCT has Jacqueline and the Beanstalk! Girls are so often stereotyped, but Jacqueline will climb to great lengths to prove them all wrong! One upon a time, Jacqueline had a brother named Jack. The entire village thought Jack was so smart, strong, and witty, but when the family ran out of money, it was Jacqueline who used her brain to get them out of trouble. Follow Jackie up the beanstalk as she shatters stigma to discover it wasn’t because she was less capable; it was because she was made to believe she was so. Now, she has the chance to prove her worth. Whether you are young or old, this fun and interactive one-woman show is important for everyone to see. Not because it’s unique, but because it’s not. It is the story of many girls.
