Get set for a gigantic stage experience as Portal Players Dramatic Society scales up the Capitol Theatre for the classic fairy tale comedy Jack and the Beanstalk.

Done in the traditional British style, this show offers entertainment for the whole family.

Directed by Scott Lowe and Tanya Horne, the cast has been hard at work sharpening their wit and developing the overblown characters featured in the show.

The cast of Jack and the Beanstalk are as follows:

Jack Trot, our hero, Cydney Pedersen; Princess Melanie, our lovely heroine, Alexandria Drew; Dame Trot, Jack’s unwomanly mother, Scott Lowe; Silly Billy, Jack’s dim-witted brother, Elliot Drew; Daisy, a cow, Teresa Drew; Fleshcreep, the Giant’s henchman, Dan Brennan; the Vegetable Fairy, Irene Williams.

Royalty includes King Satupon, the princess’s doddering father, Walter Bouleau; Sergeant Spick, a simple guard of the King, Chazz Lozorko; Corporal Span, an even simpler guard of the King, Ryleigh Horne; Clarance Clanger, the town crier, Amanda Oxley; Blodwyn Blunderbore, the Giant’s ugly wife, Dave McGarry; the Dread Dragon, a dreadful dragon, Madison Horne; and the Giant.

Jack and the Beanstalk opens Friday, Feb. 11.
