Children's Hilltop Festival - Jack and the Beansta...

Presented by Express Children's Theatre and Miller Theatre Advisory Board at Miller Outdoor Theatre

Express Children's Theatre presents the Children's Hilltop Festival with free performances at Miller Outdoor Theatre, July 22, 23, 24, & 25. The Children's Hilltop Festival includes 4 different shows over 4 days.

The second show in the Festival is on Wednesday, July 23 – Jack and the Beanstalk.

Well, poor Jack can't seem to do anything right.

He sells the cow for beans, climbs the beanstalk, gets caught and has trouble finding his way back home. But the silly Giant teaches Jack a valuable lesson about dealing with others.

This musical adaptation of the classic children's story was written by Harold Haynes.

About Express Children’s Theatre:
We are Houston’s oldest and largest performing and arts education organization dedicated specifically to children and families, and are celebrating our 22nd year of creating and presenting professional, culturally-diverse performing arts designed to entertain and educate.

Express was founded in 1991 with two shows, four actors and a shoestring budget. Our growth has been steady and we now present an average of 250 performances each season reaching over 75,000 children in venues throughout Texas.

We have been the proud recipient of two Austin Circle of Drama Awards, three B. Iden Payne awards for children’s theatre, and a cover story in Stage Directions magazine. The Children’s Hilltop Festival produced at Miller Theatre each summer was named the 2010 Best Theatre Production for Children by Houston Press.

Express offers weekly performances at its 90-seat theatre in Northwest Mall (located between Hempstead Road and 18th Street, just off 610 Loop in Northwest Houston). Our Touring Series brings the magic and excitement of quality theatre directly to children in their schools and communities. We also present performances at Houston Community College’s Heinen Theatre, and free performances at Miller Outdoor Theatre, and at numerous public libraries and community centers.
