2009 – 2010 Season

About The Play

We have all been told the story of Jack and the Beanstalk, but have you ever seen the REAL story. This one involves Jack and an old lady who lives in a shoe! That’s right, a shoe, with a whole pile of orphans and farm animals, and her very pretty daughter Bess. But times are not so good for Mother Goodluck. Her home, (the shoe) is about to be taken away from her by the mean and evil Maurice Moneybags because she can’t afford the mortgage. Whatever can be done? There is lots of action in this story, some music, some dancing, some explosions (not really big ones), a Giant (boy is he big), and fun for all. This is a traditional British pantomine, great fun for the whole family.
