Jack and the Beanstalk

Friday, December 15, 2017 to Sunday, January 7, 2018

FEE, FI, FO, FUM, WE SMELL CHRISTMAS PANTO FUN!

This Christmas the Sunderland Empire hosts a pantomime that’s guaranteed to scale great heights and offer you a gigantic helping of magic – Jack and the Beanstalk!

West End, award-winning actor Bill Ward takes on the villainous role of the giant’s henchman, Fleshcreep, in the magical panto. Born and bred in the North East, Bill is best known for his work on two of the UK’s leading soaps, Emmerdale and Coronation Street. Joining him is TV legend Janine Duvitski, who swaps Benidorm for Sunderland this festive season as the delightful Vegetable Fairy. Janine is well-known as the loveable Jaqueline Stewart in ITV1’s award-winning, Benidorm, alongside roles in Abigail’s Party, One Foot in the Grave and CBeebies’ Old Jack’s Boat, to name but a few! Children’s TV favourite Jade Natalie from Nick Jr’s GO GO GO! also stars, as Princess Jill.

With stunning costumes and sets, hilarious song and dance routines, plus more jokes than a bag full of magic beans, let’s hope our hero Jack lives happily ever after with the beautiful princess – or will a beastly giant stop him in his tracks? With a host of crazy characters, this is one madcap adventure your family won’t want to miss!

Jack and the Beanstalk is set to be another spectacular pantomime that promises to add a fairy tale touch to your festive season.

Relaxed performance Wed 27 Dec at 5pm.
