About Sammy and the Beanstalk

Eight-year-old Sammy and her dad used to have lots of fun together, making up stories and mixing potions in their kitchen. But something outside is scaring Dad and he doesn’t have the energy to play anymore.

As Sammy ticks off the days until her mum gets home, Dad becomes more withdrawn and a mysterious vine starts tapping at their windows. What does it want? And is there anything Sammy can do to help Dad be brave once more?

Olivier Award-winning OperaUpClose presents their fun and spooky, contemporary urban fairy tale, which draws inspiration from classic winter tales, both cosy and gothic, as well as opera, theatre and film to create a thrilling story-telling experience, in a wonderfully intimate setting.

Sammy and the Beanstalk is aimed at children aged 7+, families and any adult with a sense of fun and wonder.
