Jack and the Beanstalk 
play script adaptation of the old English Fairy Tale cover This classic English Fairy Tale will come to life for your students as they perform a comical rendition of the familiar Jack and the Beanstalk, enchanting the audience and feeling good about themselves, as well.

A terrible Giant is terrorizing the countryside, eating people and stealing their belongings. Jack's father has been killed by the Giant and with no money or food left in the house, Jack's Mother sends him to sell their only Cow. Jack trades the Cow to a Traveller for some magic beans, which his Mother throws out the window in disgust. The next morning, however, the beans have grown into a stalk which reaches to the clouds. Jack climbs it, finds the home of the Giant, steals his Harp and his Hen That Lays the Golden Eggs, and then cuts down the beanstalk killing the Giant who is chasing him. Everyone, of course, lives happily ever after.

This 10 minute funny play script has a narrator role which can be divided amongst several actors; 1 major male role (Jack) 2 supporting female characters and 2 supporting male characters, and a number of other small and non-speaking of any gender (these are somewhat expandable to increase the size of the cast, if desired). This script is excellent for early elementary school casts but works with older students who are uninhibited, especially if they are performing the play for a young audience. The hard copy version is 8 1/2" x 11" spiral bound with color cover.
