the beanstalk
Jack & the Magical Beanstalk

This highly original version of the old classic tale is one of our most popular scripts. There’s plenty of fast banter, funny patter and ridiculous rhyme to enjoy.

This is an ideal panto for a comedy double act. The hapless palace guards Kosh & Bosh have numerous routines in which to show off their comic chemistry, including a messy gymnasium scene, a “standing very still” routine and a pacy sketch about some “spies behind the pork pies”.

Dame Plump & her farmhand Charlie perform an hilarious new routine called “Counting Potatoes” which may well be destined to become a panto classic, and Charlie also performs a very funny “Eyetest” sketch with Jack and a delightfully muddled “giving directions” routine.

The Giant’s henchman Mickey the Menace is surprisingly a Chicago gangster, and the dame stars in a lively sketch of her own in which she teaches the queen to knit.

This is traditional family panto at its best. Download our perusal copy now.
