Jack and the Beanstalk: A Musical Adventure takes us on an epic journey through Storyland. The vivid imaginations of Harvard undergraduates Julia Riew and Ian Chan (the creators of last season's Thumbelina) transform the classic fairy tale into a journey through Storyland with Jack, her cow Buttercup, her mother, the Grand Storyteller, the King Giant, two Mice, the Itsy Bitsy Spider, and the Fiddler Cat, who help her find the determination and creativity she needs to succeed. Rebecca Aparicio makes her A.R.T. directorial debut with this production after serving as Assistant Director on Endlings and Gloria: A Life.

The cast, which is featured on the album, is comprised of Harvard University undergraduates Nikita Nair (Jack), Caitlin Beirne (Grand Storyteller), Sophie Bauder (Jack's Mother), Odessa Deng (Buttercup), Louis Zekowski (King Giant), Jonathan Castillo (Stuart), Laura Frustaci (Minnie), James Caven (Itsy) and Olympia Hatzilambrou (Fiddler Cat). Musicians include Harvard Undergraduates Sedona Farber (Guitar), Veronica Leahy (Saxophone), Noah Lee (Cello), and Alyssa Kim (Violin).

The creative team includes Julia Riew (Book, Music, and Lyrics), Rebecca Aparicio (Direction), Ian Chan (Orchestrations and Music Direction), Johnathan Carr (Video Editing and Compositing), Alex Giorgetti (Sound Supervisor and Recording/Mixing/Mastering Engineer), Elizabeth Rocha (Costume Design), Finn Barber (Lighting Design), Cynthia D.
