Once Upon a Vine
Once Upon a Vine
Book by Arnold Somers and Judith Weinstein. Music by Elissa Oppenheim Schreiner. Lyrics by Sunnie Miller.

Cast: 2m., 4 to 5w., or 6 to 7m. or w. This musical, based on Jack and the Beanstalk, tells the story of Jacqueline, a young girl growing up on a farm. The characters that Jacqueline meets in her adventures teach her about life, human frailties, strengths, values, priorities and finally, about herself as she experiences the fantasy world above the sky and the real world below. A good, old-fashioned tale that can be produced as simply or elaborately as you choose. The production of this piece at the Hunter Playhouse in New York won an ASCAP Panal Award. Flexible staging. Approximate Running Time: 45 minutes.
