This year at North Lakes School we performed a Roald Dahl musical, Jack and the Beanstalk. It was full on and everybody has worked so hard, especially the two teams of actors, Miss Baker on the scenery and Mrs Brooks on the costumes. We had a wonderful, wide range of songs like Man On The Moon, Crock Of Gold, and more. Everyone was involved and had a part to play in the school team. We had a costume department, props, scenery, choir and actors. However, we also had one or two mishaps, including Myles breaking his wrist.
The play began with the traders trying to get people to buy their wares at the market. Jack had to go to the market and sell Daisy, the family’s cow. He sold her for just a handful of beans and, when she heard this, his mother went berserk. After a night’s sleep, Jack and his mother wake up and, looking out of the window, they were amazed to see a giant bean stalk. Jack climbed up the bean stalk and as he neared the top he heard a gruff voice shouting: “Fee Fi Fo Fum, I smell the blood of a English man!”
Jack’s bossy mother went up the beanstalk and never, ever came back… but Jack succeeded in gaining a small fortune with the gold he found! Our hard work really paid off. The scenery looked fantastic, the costumes were stunning, the choir learned lots of songs and the actors really got into character. We hope you got to see it - we loved it!
