MISS MUFFET & JACK HORNER – THEIR PANTOMIME by Rod Dungate

£6.00

Most people don’t realise that Jack Horner and Little Miss Muffet (Marion Muffet) are brother and sister. Their parents have disappeared and their adventure begins when they try to escape from the Home from Home academy; this is a prison-like boarding school run by Mrs Zanzibar Grindstone.  Jack and Marion set out to seek their magic powers.

They are watched over by the Green Man, who tends the woods and orchards, though the wicked Apple Urchin does her best to ensure things go wrong.  Jack and Marion are helped and hindered by a host of intriguing  characters Including a Spider Woman type figure, Fox, Robot, and an outrageous Magpie named Corin.

An original take on the Pantomime style, yet containing a host of traditional Pantomime features.  Jack and Marion are caught in the battle between good and evil. See how it all works out in Jack Horner and Miss Muffet: Pantomime.
