Well, it all starts with the police turning up to arrest Jack (of Beanstalk fame) for theft after the Giant lodged a complaint about Jack stealing his property! Well, Jackís mother and the villagers are confused. This isnít the way the story is supposed to end! Similarly, Sleeping Beauty gets a bad case of insomnia, which means she canít get to sleep at night and is perpetually tired during the day! Then Cinderella goes to the Ball and finds the Prince is a self-obsessed airhead, who is completely unappealing. And so it goes on. Story after story doesnít end happily ever after. What can be done?

A minimum of 30 parts (could be less with doubling Ė could be more if you add in extra VILLAGERS and people at the PRINCEís Ball).

8 SONGS AND 1 PIECE OF DANCE MUSIC ARE USED IN THIS PLAY. TO SEE THE FULL LIST PLEASE VIEW THE SAMPLE OF THE PLAY.
