CHARACTERS

JACK TROTT (M/F)
Principal Boy. A good hearted but slightly dim farm boy. Very naïve and far too easily trusting.

SILLY BILLY (M/F)
Comic. Older brother to Jack. Probably a little smarter and wiser than Jack. Sees the bright side in every situation.

DAME DOLLY TROTT (M)
Traditional Pantomime Dame. Mother To Jack and Billy. Rather quick tempered and at sometimes over emotional. Never too busy to flirt with the men in the audience.

PRINCESS APRICOT CRUMBLE (F)
Principal Girl. The Kings daughter. Feisty and always looking for a way to help other. She’s certainly no damsel in distress.

QUEEN/KING CRUMBLE (M/F)
Slightly wet, kind and understanding but will always let people walk all over him. Let’s his daughter get all her own way, often for the better.

PC KENNY CLOAK (M/F)
A Crumbletown Policeman. Very slow and stupid.

PC DANNY DAGGER (M/F)
A Crumbletown Policeman. The foil to Cloak.

FLESHCREEP (M)
The Giants Henchman. Slimy and creepy. Absolutely loves to be bad.

GARDINIA, THE GRADEN FAIRY (F)
The good fairy lost most of her magic due to a run in with the Giant but will do everything in her power to ensure good wins over evil.

THE ‘GIANT’ (M)

Like the Wizard of Oz, this Giant isn’t all he is chalked up to be.

BOB THE BUTLER (M/F)

The Giant’s unwilling butler.
