Jack and the Beanstalk (Glennon)
Jack and the Beanstalk (Glennon)
Adapted by William Glennon.

Cast: 4m., 4w. (1 to 2 either) . This simplified version of the classic story is told with the author's gift for wit, adventure and warmth. Jack is a boy in search of adventure, but he can only find it in his books. Jack unwittingly goes on a real-life adventure of his own in search of a gold coin payment for his nemesis, Dame Isobel. The fairy godfather and his assistant, Junior (who is in training to be a full-fledged fairy godfather), provide warm humor while Dame Isobel, the Giant and the Giant's Wife provide obstacles for Jack to surmount. The play concludes in a fairy tale happy ending with the help of the Harp. Unit set. Approximate Running Time: 50 minutes.
