A fantastic holiday treat for the entire family. Jack and the BeansTalk-A Merry Magical Pantomime is packed with action and zingers with a couple of magical surprises tossed in for good measure. Come see Jack and the BeansTalk. East of the DVP, where you will find a humble cottage and a beanstalk that grows.Jack and the Beanstalk is a traditional Pantomime and as with any good Panto, there will be lots of laughs and guffaws and Jack will do his best to navigate his journey with a villain who will make things miserable, a garden fairy will do her best, and a best friend - his cow, Daisy, putting her neck on the line to help him out...but what of the chicken that lays the golden eggs? And where has Jill disappeared to? Who is the evil villain really working for? Will the giant come crashing down? How do beans talk? How can we have a Happy Ending? Join us to ask, "Who is behind who?" and yell "oh no there isn't". Sing a sing song-sing-a-long, and be part of our growing local tradition. Anything can happen in Pantoland...
