Jack and the Beanstalk
Oh yes it is! Popular pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk is branching out at Limelight Theatre, ready to provide plenty of laughs, dance and song. Written by Ben Crocker and directed by Gwen Browning, the story follows Jack who is in love with Princess Demelza – but the giant who lives in the clouds demands increased taxes and the princess’ hand in marriage.
