Goodman, Michael L. Jack and the Three Sillies. Encore, 1996. ISBN 1-57514-177-9. 21 pp. A 1-6 Reviewed by Harold R. Oaks Unless Jack can find three “sillies” more silly than his intended,”Buttons,” and her parents, he will not marry her. He finds several sillier people who cannot count, put on pants, or see the sun, so he returns to marry Buttons. This light folktale, done story-theatre style, moves quickly as it shifts from place to place and draws quick sketches of the sillies. It should be fun to do and a delight for audiences. There are twenty-five speaking roles (10 M, 13 F, 3 either M/F), but it could easily be double cast, if desired. It may be staged without scenery, with only minimal props and costume pieces by young performers.
