Jack and the Beanstalk (Easter 2018)

The Giant Easter Open-Air Family Panto
There’ll be magic beans this Easter at Sidmouth’s Connaught Gardens. Bring your own picnic and join us for a rolicking Devonshire panto bound to have the whole family rolling in the aisles.Jack, Dame Tilly Trott and Pat, the cow adventure up the beanstalk to defeat the evil Giant. But will Jack win Jill’s heart and the riches he so badly needs? Will good prevail over evil? Will the giant finally sort out his flatulence issue?
Brought to you by City of Light Theatre, Jack and the Beanstalk has all the ingredients of a perfect family pantomime; a talented local cast, side-splitting comedy routines, marvellous musical numbers and plenty of audience participation for all the boys and girls to hiss, boo and cheer. Who said pantomime was only for Christmas?All profits from Jack and the Beanstalk were donated to Devon Freewheelers.

City of Light Theatre’s production of ‘Jack & the Beanstalk’ was the first ever pantomime to take place on stage at Pecorama, and we were really delighted with their premiere.

You know there’s a real appetite from your visitors for the shows when not only the afternoon but also the lunchtime performances are so well supported.   

We’ve had excellent feedback on social media and would be more than happy to repeat the experience should the opportunity arise.
