The actors greet the audience as they arrive and introduce participation through mime and improvisational activities. Jack and the Northwest Wind: Jack seeks the source of the wind and makes his fortune while the audience participates as the howling wind. The Big Toe: A humorous ghost story like those "jump tales" told around a camp fire. Old Dry Frye: The misadventures of a dead body around the community with the audience joining in the refrain, "Everybody Knows Old Dry Frye." Wicked John and the Devil: Six lucky volunteers from the audience get involved in John's successful efforts at outsmarting the devil. Jack and the Robbers: A popular closing story featuring a donkey, a dog, a cat and a rooster who help Jack in his journey to discover a fortune.
