Jack and the Beanstalk

Friday 29 November 2013 - Saturday 18 January 2014

Main House - £20 - £27.50 (Family Ticket £65)

Details

Kenneth Alan Taylor is back, for one last time! See him star as Dame Daisy in the same pantomime with which he began, Jack and the Beanstalk.

Come prepared for melodious moo-sic, madness, cattlestrophic costumes and glitter aplenty in this magical winter treat for all the family.

Jack may well have his head in the clouds, but he could do with a bit more fee-fi-fo-fun in his life. But when he udderly foolishly sells Buttercup the family cow for a handful of boring beans, oh yes he is in trouble! But he’s about to climb new heights in this giant of a magical adventure!

Joining Kenneth on stage are Playhouse favourites John Elkington, Rebecca Little and Daniel Hoffmann-Gill.

Relaxed Performance

Jack and the Beanstalk is supported by:

“With the Playhouse also celebrating its 50th anniversary, this should be a riot of a festive show and a reminder that staging a really great panto is every bit as hard and worthy of credit as staging a truly great King Lear.
Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

Business as usual for the legendary Nottingham Playhouse pantomime

The Guardian


If you are looking for a terrific, proper traditional pantomime to take the whole family to, then Jack and the Beanstalk at Nottingham Playhouse has to be it

The Public Reviews

Fabulous dancing, a gorgeous set and big foot-tapping numbers …brings the house down

The Stage

Kenneth Alan Taylor holds court on stage as the dame. No one could do it better
