Paul Kalburgi is pleased to introduce his new pantomime script for Jack and the Beanstalk which is now available from StagePlays.com.
The classic pantomime re-imagined! Sing, Shout, Boo and Cheer as our hero Jack journeys to the top of the beanstalk in search of his fortune and a better life for him and his sick mother. But he’s not the only one seeking treasure, with his wicked Aunt Verruca and crazy new cousin Dame Dilly Dally hot on his heels.
Meanwhile, on the eve of the Princess of Diamonds’ birthday party, the King of Spades has threatened the entire village of Lillyshaw with a demolition order if his precious golden items are not returned. Jack is guided on his adventure by good and bad fairies Virtue and Jeopardy, but when he finally reaches the top of the stalk, things aren’t quite what… or who they seem!
Good wins over evil and he who dares to venture into this strange new world shall be rewarded with riches… and true love! Complete with Pat the pantomime cow, Tom, Dick and Harry the three palace jesters… and of course, those magic beans!
The character breakdown is as follows:
Princess of Diamonds
King of Spades
Queen of Hearts
Dame Dilly Dally
Jeeves / The Giant
Pat The Cow
Plus, optional ensemble roles including villagers, ghosts, palace staff, animals on the beanstalk and golden items.
