Jack, a dim boy, sells the family's cow, their last remaining possession, for some 'magic beans', his mother is furious and throws them out of the window. Next morning there is a magic beanstalk, which Jack climbs to the land of the giant. There he rescues the love interest, and the goose that lays the golden eggs and runs away as the giant returns booming 'fee, fie, foe, fum, I smell the blood of an Englishman!' and occasionally 'Be he alive or be he dead I'll grind his bones to make my bread' depending on how bloodthirsty the panto is! As the giant follows Jack down the beanstalk Jack grabs an axe and chops it down thus killing the him.Performers Pete Dunwell (Simple Simon), Rebecca Stokes (Jack), John Jardine (Dame Mary Trot), Pete Dunwell (Simple Simon), Nick Haverson (Ivor G Bogey), Frank Ellis (King Bertram of Borrowash), Andy Brady (Scarecrow/Giant/Cow), Helen Anker (Princess Rose), Penny-Belle Fowler (Fairy Sweet Pea).
