This year’s production by Chapel Players will be Jack and the Beanstalk, the traditional tale of fantasy and adventure, ever popular with panto fans of all ages.
This is the latest in a series of highly successful pantomimes written by Graham Barraclough and performed by a cast of local children and adults at Chapel Playhouse.
It’s a great outing for all the family, full of fun and adventure, songs and dances.
You know the story: brave, handsome Jack is cheated out of the family cow by dastardly villain, Scallawag who pays him in beans.
The beans become an enormous beanstalk which leads Jack and his friends to Cloud Cuckoo Land, a magical place ruled by the terrible Giant Blunderbore who enslaves the population and steals their gold.
After a lot of crazy and hilarious shenanigans involving Jack’s mum and daft brother, a dancing cow and many other crazy characters, the goodies defeat the giant, get back the gold and, of course, Jack gets to marry the beautiful Jill.
Giants and heroes, spooks and fairies, custard pies and comedians all go into the mix, so come and join in the fun! Performances at the playhouse, on Eccles Road, Chapel-en-le-Frith, start at 7.30pm on January 17, 18, 23, 24 and 25 with matinees at 2pm on the Saturdays (18 and 25).
There’s fun, music and spectacle for all the family and all for £6 for adults and £4 concessions.
Tickets available from Halls Mica Hardware, on Market Street.
