 Jack and the Beanstalk


A giant of a pantomime with a host of wonderful comedy characters. The villagers of Greendale are under the cosh. The Giant Blunderbore, with the help of his evil sidekick, Grotviler, is bleeding them dry, and the pompous but terrified Mayor is kowtowing to the Giant’s will, taxing the villagers for all he is worth. The good Fairy Haricot Vert arrives from France, to help Greendale’s downtrodden populous. Grotviler is not happy about the arrival of Harricot Vert. Dame Tilly Trot is suffering more than most. Her dairy isn’t doing very well and her sons, Jack and Simple Simon, don’t possess great business brains. The only way to pay the Dame’s back‐taxes and rent arrears is to sell her cow, Buttercup, so Jack is sent to the market to get a good price. When Jack returns with a handful of beans, Dame Trot throws them out of the window, only to find, next morning, that a giant beanstalk has grown in her garden.
And so the adventure begins……
