JACK AND THE BEANSTALK – ST IVES THEATRE
Written by Alan P Frayn
Greetings once more – what a pleasant surprise,
Is it that time of year again? Cor, how time flies!
Down in the village of Old Windy Bottom, a huge black cloud has appeared in the skies above, much to the annoyance of good Fairy Sugardust. And now the children have started to disappear, spreading fear amongst the villagers, whilst Piccalilli, the Wicked Witch, seems to be in her element. She gloats …
“Once happiness reigned here – that made me defiant,
So I cast me a spell which created the Giant.
His name’s Buster Gut-Bucket – bad as they come,
For when he is cross, he shouts Fee fi fo fum!”
And so, the scene is set for our story of adventure, romance and heroism. For shortly, as you will see, Simple Simon is tricked by a pedlar, the Princess is abducted by the Giant and Jack, the son of Dame Dotty Dimple, heads for the skies in an attempt to rescue his sweetheart.
Will Jack reach the Princess? Will the Giant set her free?
We can tell you no more – just sit back, wait and see …
