Jack & The Big Stork


By Anthony James – Music by Daniel Hewitt


A Potty Panto


Young Jack is a useless farmer and an awful singer. His long suffering mother finally has enough when he ruins the harvest, threatening both their farm and their village with starvation. As a last resort and to the consternation of both Jack’s sister and his girlfriend, Mary Milkmaid, she sends him to town to sell their trusty, milk cow, Esmeralda, at the market.

At the market Jack meets the evil Witch Watt who dupes him into parting with Esmeralda for a strange, egg shaped, magic bean.

This magic bean is not a beanstalk; no its something far more “Potty”!
