Epstein Theatre offers giant panto fun this Easter


Panto returns to the Epstein Theatre stage this Easter – and producers are promising young theatregoers tall stories and giant adventures.

Jack and the Beanstalk will entertain youngsters and their families from April 13-24.

Timothy Lucas takes on the title role of Jack while Lewis Devine is Simple Simon, Mark Two plays Dame Dolly Trott, and Abigail Middleton is on baddie duties as the evil Mrs Fleshcreep.

The cast is completed by Maddie Hope Coelho as Princess Jill and Jenna Sian O’Hara who plays Fairy Mary.

Audiences will join Jack on his gigantic journey up the beanstalk as he discovers geese with golden eggs, a magic harp, and a close encounter with a very hungry giant. But he’ll need to tread carefully as the villainous Mrs Fleshcreep is hot on his heels and is determined to stop him in his tracks.

Reece Sibbald has penned the script and the Regal Entertainments' production is being directed by Olivia Sloyan.

Jane Joseph, Regal Entertainments’ company director, said: “After a wonderful Christmas at the Epstein with Beauty and the Beast, we’re thrilled to once again welcome back audiences through the doors for this fabulous Easter show.”

Jack and the Beanstalk is at the Epstein Theatre from April 13-24. Tickets from the website HERE
