Jack and the Beanstalk - School Enrichment program cast

PROGRAM: Catriona, the Fairy Godmother (or Mother Goose) sets up a small theatre area in the classroom or assembly room with props and kid-size scenery. She then costumes up to 30 children as different characters in the chosen story. The children are chosen at random from their seats on the floor. There is also audience participation for larger groups, including sound effects and seated theatrical gestures. After costuming the children as different characters in the chosen story (choose from 17), the Fairy Godmother (or Mother Goose) tells the story and whispers things for the children to say and do. They hop up and down for their particular role in the story and act out the play. The 45 minute show ends with the cast taking a bow.

     Review in CULTURAL ENRICHMENT PROGRAM Our summer camp program spent a wonderful afternoon exploring the story of Jack and the Beanstalk with the amazing Catriona! From the minute she walked in the minute she walked out - she had us at "Hello!" This was our first visit with Catriona and will not be our last! Catriona's story telling techniques had young and "old" enthralled. Thank you so much! Already booked our second event and cannot wait! 5 out of 5 stars Expertise, Communication, Professionalism, Priced Fairly, Adaptability Cathy F. FCC Children's Center, Frederick, MD 9/14

Preschool class performing Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes


Catriona's Castle performance at the National Theatre Saturday Children's Series during a production of Jack and the Beanstalk, in the Helen Hayes Theatre. Approximately 30 children, from the audience, were chosen at random, to perform the story with Catriona, the Fairy Godmother.

Catriona's Castle brings magical and memorable in-house field trips to your location. Interactive drama is a wonderful peer interaction tool that fosters social skills while using the imagination.
