King Humpty Dumpty: Play by Paul Reakes
This fast-moving, fun-filled pantomime opens with the Bad Luck Fairy, Jinxit, about to hire Humpty Dumpty as her evil assistant. The Good Fairy arrives to save him, sealing him in a giant egg to keep him from harm. Jinxit transports the egg to the land of the mortals where it ends up in Eggton-on-Sea, to become a treasured landmark on the sea front. We are transported many years hence to a typical British seaside and there is plenty of opportunity for fun and games, mistaken identities and slapstick humour as Patsy Putumup (B & B landlady) falls for Captain Vince Valiant but has to contend with Princess Penelope vying for his affection. Privates Spit and Polish are the broker's men and lovable Horace, the Horse, provides even more amusement. With lots of opportunities for songs (choice is left to the director) this should prove very popular with audiences.
