St Helens Easter panto promises to be a terrific tall story
There will be golden eggs aplenty this Easter when Jack and the Beanstalk is beamed direct to audiences’ homes.
The Regal Entertainments production for St Helens Theatre Royal will be filmed and then streamed online via the theatre’s website from April 2-11.
There will be 17 performances of the panto favourite which pits Timothy Lucas’ hero Jack against a very hungry giant.
The show tells the story of the boy who is persuaded to sell the family cow for a handful of beans, getting him into a lot of trouble with his poor mother as a result.
But the story takes a magical twist when the beans sprout into a magnificent beanstalk that reaches up to a mystical land high in the sky.
The cast also includes Jamie Greer, Olivia Sloyan, Abigail Middleton, Jenna Sian O’Hara and Reece Sibbald - who has also written the show.
Director, and St Helens Theatre Royal manager, Chantelle Nolan says: “The entertainment industry has been hit extremely hard over the last 12 months, so we were really looking forward to welcoming audiences back into the theatre this Easter, but sadly due to ongoing Government restrictions we’re not able to do that just yet.
“However, one thing we absolutely pride ourselves on at St Helens Theatre Royal is our original family pantomimes.
“We’ve all missed out on so much in the last year, so rather than our loyal community miss our popular Easter pantomime we’re filming the show to stream online – something which proved very popular when our Christmas panto run was cut short by the national lockdown.”
Jack and the Beanstalk is being streamed from April 2-11. Tickets are £20 per device.
