When the giant falls asleep, Jack steals a bag of gold coins and makes his escape down the beanstalk. He debuts in " The Eighth Witch ". Once the husband falls asleep Jack escapes the oven, steals a bag of gold, and runs out of the house. His mother then sends Jack to bed with no dinner and when Jack wakes up the next morning he realizes that the beans sprouted into a giant beanstalk traveling all the way up to the sky. In this adaptation, the giant's vengeful wife Frances de la Tour attacks the kingdom to find and kill Jack as revenge for him murdering her husband, where some characters were killed during her rampage.

In the second half of the musical, the giant's wife climbs down a second inadvertently planted beanstalk to exact revenge for her husband's death, furious at Jack's betrayal of her hospitality.
