Jack and the Beanstalk by Kei Bailey


Heckington Players 2023 pantomime is Jack and the Beanstalk by Kei Bailey.

The action is set in and around a town called Flummox in the Kingdom of Bamboozle and the magical realm in the sky known as Cloudland. 

The Trott family live a happy, carefree life until ruthless television executive Ammonia Splinter sacks Dame Trott and Jack from their jobs at Sunshine TV Studios. It isn’t long before they find themselves without a penny to their name and they reluctantly decide to sell the beloved family pet Daisy the cow to earn some money. However, when Jack’s brother Simon returns from market with the news that he has exchanged the cow for nothing but a bag of beans, the situation looks hopeless and, in a temper, Dame Trott hurls the beans out of the window. In the morning, a ginormous beanstalk is growing in their garden and Jack, encouraged by trainee fairy Rosie Glow, climbs up into the clouds closely followed by his mother, brother and a film crew from Sunshine TV.
