(2016, March) Magnus Chan - Youth Group Five Fantastic Tales from Around the World - Group 3 Leader—Jack and the Beanstalk:
I liked this story as it presented a challenge in how to tell it. For example, we had to work out how to tell the story of the beanstalk and whether to go off stage or to try to climb on stage. The ages in the group range from 10 to 18 and I have both enjoyed this process whilst at the same time found it quite challenging! It was great to be able to choose the story ourselves and then have our own ideas and work creatively together but I found the organisational side harder. I learnt that it helps if actors give input to the process. I would very much like us to put on a big play in the future where all cast work on the same piece together.
