Two nights of climbing a Bean Stalk with Jack, along with the rest of the cast and crew from Annunciation School

The staff and students at Annunciation School are in the final moments of prep time for their highly anticipated theatre performance of Jack and the Bean Stalk, with the curtain set to rise on the production on Wednesday evening, with the finale of the two night run to come on Thursday, February 23rd.

The Lester Centre of the Arts stage will be transformed into Jack's back lot, as the favourite tale is retold through the talents of the student body at the city's Independent School.

Rehearsals and set design have been part of the preparation ritual for a while now,  as the actors rehearsed their lines and the support crews work on their plans to make scenes run smoothly.

The production is part of Annunciation's 100th Anniversary celebrations and as part of the two night run, some special guests will be be making surprise appearances throughout the show.

Those in the audience will have to watch closely as Annunciation calls upon many of their students of the past to take part in this years performance, watching to see who pops through a window or door, as well as for who may wander into a scene unexpectedly.

The Annunciation plays, much like the work from teachers and students from SD52 prove to be popular events at the Lester Centre, as the city's thriving theatrical community continues to show through year after year.

Showtime for both evening performances is 7PM with admission by donation at the door.
