Mother Goose

    by Ian Bettridge


What price would you put on beauty? £500? £1000? The love and support of your family and friends?

This is the dilemma that faces Mother Goose. She is not blessed with model looks and she could do with more money, a wardrobe makeover and the loss of a few inches around her waist. One thing she does have however is the unconditional love of her daughter, Jill. This soon appears not to be enough for her. She is thrown together with Priscilla a 'magical' goose, sent down to look after her by the chief fairy of fairyland, Emerald, and her young assistant, Fairy Nuff.

Add to this the money-grabbing Baron of Merrydale, his handsome nephew, Jack, who has stolen Jill's heart, the Baron's two inept henchmen, Scratch and Sniff, and Silly Billy, the village joke Then you have the ingredients to make a truly magical pantomime that the whole family will enjoy.
