What better way to get into the Holiday spirit than to mix laughter with tradition and join the festive fun at this year’s pantomime – Roger Hall’s Jack and the Beanstalk?

Jack and his mother are so poor they have to sell Betsy, their beloved cow. But instead of getting money, Jack accepts beans from a stranger… magic beans! And soon he is up among the clouds in a wondrous land where there is a goose that lays golden eggs, and – Fee, Fi Fo, Fum – a Giant with a dangerous appetite!

The team that brought you Robin Hood and Red Riding Hood climb to beanstalk heights and explore exciting new worlds to create another musical and magical treat, with a panto Dame, lots of topical jokes and great fun for everyone.

FAMILY PASSES AVAILABLE! If you wish to book a “Family pass” (2 adults and 2 children) please ring 04 801 7992. Note: Children are from 2 years to secondary school age (babies can sit on laps).
