Jack and the Beanstalk

by Marjorie Sokoloff

A Spotlight Jr Players full-length play

Jack’s life is tough. He and his mother have no money, no food, a run-down house, and an opera-singing cow that won’t give milk. Just as he’s about to be sent off to an orphanage, Jack meets a mysterious stranger, who gives him three magic beans, along with an even more mysterious piece of advice that sets Jack climbing up a beanstalk and into the clouds. There, he meets a Giant who would do anything to change places with him. With the help of a wise-cracking hen and a self-absorbed cow, can all of their problems be solved?
