Jack and the Beanstalk
St Philip & St James Church Drama Group

The final night of Jack and the Beanstalk was a great success, from the overture and opening number of It's Time to Meet the Muppets, to the hit number sung by the giant's wife I Will Survive referring to her marriage to the mean tiant.

Along the way we were led by a lovely cast with Kevin Miles and Kim Jenkins as romancers Nellie and Simon Simple who were greeted with cheers from the audience each time they came on stage.
There were two wonderful new characters, Miss Marbles and Hercule Parrot ("We can't all be Sherlock"), a pair of amateur detectives using their sleuthing skills to solve the mysterious disappearance of the local animals.
We were treated to the usual panto jokes including some popular lines from the BBC hit Miranda. Widow Bramble was asked how much back rent she owed, then counted on her fingers while replying, "Bear with . . . Bear with". At one point in the evening, Nellie said to Simon Simple, "You're so romantic", and a voice from the audience replied, "Oh no he isn't" – presumably the actor's wife.
The drama group's interpretation of the growing beanstalk sown with GM Beans (Genuinely Magical) was enchanting with dancing glow-in-the-dark garden implements tending the enormous growing luminescent beanstalk.
A lovely evening culminating in the finale where the star-crossed lovers, Jack and Jill get married; described by Widow Bramble as, "Such fun" – and it was.
