What happens when a young boy plants Wonder Beans in his backyard?
For Jack, it is the beginning of a great adventure. With a little help from P.T. Wonder and a Giant, Jack learns a valuable lesson about true happiness.
This musical production also features a host of other characters, including the Elegant Harp, Jill, Mother, Milky White, the Farmers, the Merchants, the Circus Performers and the Wonder Beans.
The production is made possible through collaboration between The Little Theatre and MCT.
MCT has toured extensively for more than 30 years, from Montana to Japan, and will visit more than 1,000 communities this year with 35 teams of tour actor/directors.
A tour team arrives in a given town with a set, lights, costumes, props and make-up, everything it takes to put on a play — except the cast.
All MCT shows are original adaptations of classic children’s stories and fairy tales.
Also included in the residency are three enrichment workshops presented by the tour actor/directors. Creativity, social skills, goal achievement, communication skills and self-esteem are all characteristics that are attained through the participation in this unique, educational project.
MCT’s mission is the development of life skills in children through participation in the performing arts.
