Jack & The Beanstalk
by Bailes and Hales published 2004
Suitable for All Groups
Bailes & Hales' second script, in the same inimitable style as Robin Hood, including parody lyrics to tunes by Abba, Village People, and Frank & Nancy Sinatra.
Totally evil villainess Egbertha Ratchet is planning the eviction of all the local villagers, including Jack and his aunt Dottie. To add to their problems, Giant Tumbletop, who is on Egbertha' payroll, has been terrorising the village for some time. Jack climbs the beanstalk to the Giant's castle in the clouds; his cunning plan to save the day and thwart Egbertha involves Dottie, Princess Anastasia, cow Buttercup, comic duo Dim & Dum, the talking harp and of course, the goose that lays the golden eggs.
