SunLive Competition

Jack and the Beanstalk, presented at Baycourt on December 14-15, will be the Dance Education Centre’s 40th end-of-year show and marks a major milestone for DEC owners and co-directors, Prue and Debbie Gooch.

This year a seven-metre-tall beanstalk is just one of the stage sets being created by hand, along with a thatched house, a barn, a stone wall, trees, a floral backdrop and a big giant’s table, amongst other things. A swathe of green pool noodles have been intertwined with mesh to give the beanstalk some girth and there will be plenty of humorous moments when quirky props such as horses are brought to life by the dancers.

Escape to the idyllic countryside, relish in the follies of childhood adventures and take part in a memorable holiday outing that the whole family will enjoy.

Tickets can be purchased through Baycourt and used show week of December 9-15 for 10 per cent off your bill at Barrio Brothers, CBK, Collar and Thai, Cornerstone, Crown & Badger, Momo Teppan-Yaki and RYE. Dance Education Centre offers training in ballet, urban, contemporary and musical theatre.
