Jack And The Beanstalk At Circa

PRESS RELEASE
The SOVEREIGN Season of

Roger Hall’s
JACK and the BEANSTALK The Pantomime

Songs by Paul Jenden and Michael Nicholas Williams

Directed by Susan Wilson

There’s laughter, tradition and fabulous festive fun at this year’s annual pantomime – Roger Hall’s Jack and the Beanstalk, which opens in CIRCA ONE on Saturday 17th November at 8pm.

Jack and his mother are in debt again! Their wicked landlady, Mrs Stilton and her side-kick Claud Back, are about to throw them out, and creditors are closing in. So, with nothing else left, Betsy, their beloved cow, must be sold. But Jack is in love (with the landlady’s daughter, the lovely Paris) and instead of getting money, Jack accepts beans from a stranger .... magic beans! And soon he is up among the clouds in a wondrous land where there is a Goose that lays golden eggs, and, Fee Fie Fo Fum … a Giant with a dangerous appetite!

From the team that created Cinderella and Aladdin – now comes Jack & the Beanstalk with its exciting new land of musical and magical treats.

With Julian Wilson as Hilda Hardup the panto Dame, lots of topical jokes, Roger Hall’s legendary wit, foot-stomping country-and-western style music by Michael Williams accompanied by Sue Dunlop on guitar, and Paul Jenden’s amazingly creative costumes
JACK and the BEANSTALK is a fun night out for everyone!

Starring a stunning line-up of funny, energetic and hugely talented actors:-
JUDE GIBSON, PAUL JENDEN, JEFF KINGSFORD-BROWN, DANIELLE MASON, JANE WADDELL, MICHAEL WHALLEY, JULIAN WILSON
