The magic and mayhem returns to the Wilde Theatre with a brand new version of the timeless tale Jack and the Beanstalk (opening Fri 25 Nov 2022).
Follow country-boy Jack on this hilarious, fee-fi-fo-fun-filled adventure as he sells the family cow for a handful of magic beans and climbs the towering beanstalk. But what awaits him, above the clouds, at the top? And will he find his fortune in sparkling treasure and egg-quisite gold?
So join us for a larger-than-life festive season filled with laughter, silly songs, colourful characters, slapstick comedy, and enchanted harps and hens – in this Great British pantomime favourite full of creative sparkle.
