Traditional British Panto returns to Sherman! Oh yes it does! Jack and the Beanstalk is one of the UK's favorite pantos, filled with spectacle, songs and good family fun. Falling on hard times good-hearted dreamer Jack is sent by his mother, Dame Trott to market to sell his faithful, sweet-natured cow Daisy. Meanwhile Fleshcreep, the Giant's wicked henchman is sent to terrorize the kingdom and kidnap the Princess, stealing her away to his master's castle in the clouds. Why does Jack exchange Daisy for a bag of magic beans? Will the Princess be rescued from Fleshcreep's evil clutches? Can the Giant be defeated and the kingdom freed? Find out as Jack climbs the beanstalk to adventure aided by his silly brother, a good fairy and a bumbling King with his dimwitted guards! There'll be music, dancing, magic, thrills, spills and jokes coming thick and fast! Fun for all the family where the audience is definitely encouraged to join in the silliness!

CRITICS AGREE: Cabaret is Hot
"...this production under the formidable direction and choreography of Bradford Blake errs on the side of authenticity. Blake captures the essence of trouble so hot it’s about to bubble, and Charles Smith as music director knows just when to turn the rhythmic heat up so high that everything boils over." - Joanne Rochman, Republican American - mailchi.mp/986e0db6935c/critics-agree-cabaret-is-hot

ATTENTION AUDITION NOTICE!
FE-FI-FO-FUM! Announcing Auditions for The Sherman Players’ production of the traditional British Panto, Jack and The Beanstalk.
Where: The green room at the Sherman Playhouse.
When: Monday Sept 23 and Tuesday Sept 24 from 7pm to 9.30pm
Who: Adults and youths 13 yrs and older
This Panto takes the traditional story of Jack climbing the beanstalk to do battle with the evil giant and throws in magic, song, spectacle, romance and more than a little old fashioned vaudeville slapstick comedy and a splash of Monty Python!. This is a show for the whole family – where the audience is definitely encouraged to join in the fun!
In addition to the large principal cast, the ensemble features prominently throughout the show – very much a character in itself!
All principal characters should sing well, though there are very few solo songs, and ensemble members should be comfortable with some simple harmonies. Above all what’s needed is enthusiasm, comic timing and a great sense of fun!
If auditioning for a named role please prepare 8-16 bars of an upbeat song. Sides will be provided for readings.
Character descriptions are below. This information and the audition sides will also be posted to our website www.shermanplayers.org.
For more information please contact director Steve Stott at information@shermanplayers.org.

Jack Trot – (traditionally played by a female) -Our hero, a good hearted dreamer. Loves the princess.
Dame Trot - (traditionally played by male) – Jack’s mother. Over the top, big of heart, hair and of bosom.
Fleshcreep – (Male) The big baddie. The Giant’s wicked henchman. The audience will boo him, and he’ll love it!
The Vegetable Fairy – (female) Intent on helping Jack, her magic doesn’t always work and when it does it’s horticultural.
Silly Billy – (male) Jack’s brother. A cheeky chappie, he’ll help anyone and loves to get the audience involved!
King Satupon – (male) His kingdom has seen better days, always short of money since the Giant demands his taxes. Has a big crush on the Dame.
Princess Melanie – (female) Feisty and kind. She loves Jack.
Sergeant Spick and Corporal Span – (male or female) The King’s Guards. Hapless, clueless, witless. They just want to be paid.
Clarance/Clarice Clanger – (male or female) The town crier, a bit too enthusiastic with his/her bell.
Blodwyn Blunderbore – (female) The Giant’s human wife. A nasty piece of work, she lords it over the Giant’s prisoners.
The Giant Blunderbore – Big and Bad. Heard throughout the Panto, he appears in Act Two. He can be played by an ensemble member.
Daisy the cow – Traditional Panto cow, her costume is inhabited by two actors who move well. Lots of fun business. The audience will love her!
Villagers, Townsfolk, Prisoners of the Giant, Magical Folk, Wedding Guests – an ensemble with lots to do and lots to sing!
