Jack and the Beanstalk 2017

Show Dates: 13th - 24th December
Times: Various

Seating: Tiered / Reserved

“Jack” is an action-packed pantomime with the most heroic hero of them all, who fights and defeats the huge Giant Blunderbore – and wins the hand/heart of the beautiful Jill. This is an old fashioned British pantomime, set in an idyllic county setting. “Jack” is the classic combination of the straight characters’ triumph of good over evil, resulting in the sealing of their romantic ambitions, coupled with the comic characters’ humorous antics and zany behaviour. The comedy is carried by the warm, sympathetic Dame Trot, and her stupid son Silly Billy. There is both knock-about and verbal humour, loads of audience participation, and several set piece comic routines including the classic Cow Milking Scene. “Jack and the Beanstalk” is a marvelous traditional panto built around a strong story line and provides us with great opportunities for simple, yet spectacular songs, dances and special effects!
