Tickets still available for kid-friendly Saturday and Sunday shows at Theatre Burlington

After cancelling last week’s performance due to illness, the cast and crew of Theatre Burlington’s Jack and the Beanstalk are healthy and ready to go.

The show will now open on Saturday (Nov. 25).

The one-hour production is a modern twist on a classic tale, designed to introduce children to the magic of live theatre, say organizers.

Jack and the Beanstalk runs twice on the weekend, with shows on Nov. 25 and 26 at 1:30 and 3:30 p.m.

The fun will continue next weekend, with matinee shows on Dec. 1 and 2. The production will also include an evening performance on Dec. 1 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $12 and available at or by contacting the Box Office at 905-639-7700.

Theatre Burlington is located on Teen Tour Way, behind the Central Park bandshell, beside Central Library.
