Mother Goose

    by David Maun



Synopsis

“A timeless tale brought magically to life.”

This is the simple story of poor, but ugly, Mother Goose who dreams of being rich and beautiful. A pantomime that will delight and enthral children of all ages.

Mother Goose lives in the Village of Sweet Content with her children Jill and Billy. The Village Squire wants his rent from her small run-down cottage and threatens to have her thrown out.   However Priscilla, a magic goose who has escaped from Gooseland, arrives and is befriended by Mother Goose. When Priscilla starts laying golden eggs Mother Goose becomes rich, moves into a grand mansion and reopens the Village School.

In a sub-plot the Demon King challenges Fairy Paxo to a duel, insisting that evil will always triumph over good. He says that if he can change Mother Goose, then Priscilla will be his. Poor Mother Goose soon dreams of beauty and the Demon King seizes his chance and bewitches her. But fear not, a happy ending is guaranteed in true pantomime style.

Additional characters include Sam and Ella (The Squire's Bailiff and drippy girlfriend), Jack (the Squire’s nephew) and Queen of Gooseland.

With eleven principals and a chorus that can be any size, there is plenty of scope for big production numbers and fairytale sets. There are six main sets with numerous smaller scenes played in front of secondary tabs.
