Description A traditional English fairy-tale retold and arranged for Narrator and four guitars. First performed at the Eastman Community Music School in 2012 by Donald Sade- narrator, Matthew Ardizzone, Petar Kodzas, Kyle Patterson, and Sungmin Shin - guitars. A good time was had by all.

The melody of the theme "Jack and the Princess" is based on my memory of a song in an early, animated film of Jack and the Beanstalk that I watched decades ago with my young children. The narrative, although based on the traditional story, contains some original elements, especially the salvation of the Giant at the end.
The narration alternates with the musical passages.
