This Christmas, Wicked Productions, the company behind the smash hit sell out pantomimes at the Royal Victoria Hall in Southborough for many years, and last years’ spectacular production of Aladdin at the EM Forster Theatre, returns to Tonbridge for the third spellbinding year from Saturday 15th December through to Sunday 6th January. This year’s GIANT of a pantomime ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ promises to be an enormous festive adventure for the whole family, with hilarious Fe Fi Fo FUN guaranteed!
Join Jack on the adventure of a lifetime as this grounded dreamer is forced to swap his bovine best friend for a seemingly useless bag of beans- which soon turn out to be decidedly more magical than your average can of Heinz! Things hot up for poor Jack when he must climb into the sky and face the evil giant lurking above.
Will our unlikely hero rescue his udderly adorable cow ‘Pat’ and childhood sweetheart Jill? Will Jack’s mother Dame Trott cause havoc and scupper his quest to make his fortune? Will Jack ever make it to the top of the beanstalk? All will be revealed this Christmas at the EM Forster Theatre!
Back by popular demand following their hilarious comic partnership last year are Tom Swift as Jack Trott and Michael Fenton Stevens as Dame Trott, the sensational Amanda Swift as Cow Pat and for his third villainous year Edwin Wright as Crook Back. Joining the cast as Jill is theatre, film and TV actress Kirsty J Curtis.
Following sell out performances last year, this year’s pantomime run has been extended from 15th December to 6th January. Theatre Manager Kat Portman Smith said “The panto has gone from strength to strength and we can’t wait to have Tom and his team back in the theatre this Christmas for some more family fun.”
Featuring the stunning scenery, music, choreography, magic and fun audiences have come to expect from Wicked Productions, with a show stopping giant, beanstalk and amazing special effects, Jack and the Beanstalk promises to be an unmissable GIANT Christmas spectacular!
