We are in Pantoland once again and this year sees us following the rags to riches story of JackTrott (Lorraine Pearson) who sets off from a sleepy finish and ends up climbing the beanstalk to confront the Giant (Joe Castillani).

Superb costumes and a firm hand on the procceedings courtesy of Director Andrew Cameron ensure that this pantomine overflows with success. Imaginative sets and excellent dancing and performances made this panto a winner.

'Far from wilting, this beanstalk definately flourished'. See press review below.
