2023/24 Pantomime: Jac and the Beanstalk

Sat 9 December 2023 - Sun 7 January 2024

Fe-fi-fo-fum, a giant of a panto full of fun! 

Follow Jac, and climb a beanstalk of gigantic proportions to cloudland in the spectacular family pantomime Jac and the Beanstalk. Lesley Joseph will lead the cast in this year’s GIANT family pantomime as The Spirit of the Beans. Alongside Lesley will be panto Dame extraordinaire Mike Doyle as Dame Trot, leading comedian and impressionist Aaron James as Silly Simon, sensational vocalist Denquar Chupak as the Princess, the ultimate panto villain Steve Arnott as Fleshcreep and musical theatre star Adam Bailey as Jac.
Doomed to sell his trusty cow, join Jac and his family as they fight to outwit the evil giant, win riches beyond his wildest dreams and the hand of the girl he loves. Expect laughs, music, special effects, magic beans and bundles of audience participation in this giant of a pantomime!

Exact running time will be available from Sat 9 Dec 2023.
