Product description

Roald Dahl's Jack and the beanstalk, the musical, has Jack (definitely whiffy) and the friendly farm animals defying the Giant's phenomenal sniffing powers and Jack's greedy mother to come out triumphantly rich - and squeaky clean. As well as starring roles for Jack, his mum, and the Giant, there are dozens of parts for farm animals and market traders - and everyone can sing in the chorus. Thousands of children have taken part in school performances of this riotously funny adaptation of Roald Dahl's irreverent twist on the traditional tale. A recent review in Music Teacher said: 'It is very difficult to pinpoint an aspect of performance which these musical packages do not address...(These are) completely foolproof musicals, which could be used and adapted by the most inexperienced of directors...undoubtedly an inspired resource' As with every one of these great Roald Dahl musicals, Jack and the Beanstalk is based on an orchestral commission by the Roald Dahl Foundation. The concert work, from which the schools' musical is derived is by Gergs Pelecis, and schools can use the extracts provided from the orchestral work to enhance their performances. Schools can buy a performance licence online at A&C Black musicals website
