Product Information

Flexible cast of 15-20.

  • Jack and the Beanstalk is a comedy-adventure pantomime for fourteen principals, singers, dancers and chorus.
  • The folk tale is followed closely in outline, but with considerable embellishments and fresh touches.
  • The legend of the Sword in the Stone is reflected in Jack's method of obtaining the magic sword: the Dame has a tremendous fight with the Giant's evil hench-man: the Vegetable Fairy is certainly an original creation for the usual Power of the Good - eternally Over-optimistic, frequently bungling her effects, and with - for most of the play - an oversize leek as a wand.
  • The climactic contest between Jack and the Giant is described in detail to avoid "a soppy couple of vague pokes from the principal boy's sword".
  • Special interpolations include an updated version of a famous Grimaldi comedy "baby bathing" scene.
  • The pantomime offers opportunities for elaborate staging, but can be produced quite simply where facilities are limited.
