Whose Play Is It, Anyway?

INTERACTIVE COMEDY FOR YOUNG AUDIENCES. Rapunzel, Cinderella, and the wolf from “The Three Little Pigs” keep interrupting a theatre troupe’s performance of “Jack and the Beanstalk.” Even the Pied Piper conducts a sing-a-long with the audience in the middle of the play. All the performers think they are the most important character, so whose play is it, anyway? In this interactive show, audience members are invited onstage to play the roles of Jack’s cow and the Giant’s goose. The audience helps the narrator count, awakens Jack from a sound slumber, assists Cinderella in finding her broom, names Jack’s cow, and locates Jack’s beanstalk. Audiences of all ages will adore this hilarious comedy. Easy to stage and perfect for touring.
