Worcester Repertory Company’s gigantic pantomime opens soon!
Oh yes it does!!! Rehearsals are well under way to make this the most magical festive treat for you and the family.
The Worcester Repertory Company are back with the most GIGANTIC pantomime of them all, Jack and The Beanstalk. A story of bravery and beans, giants and gold, friendship and fantasy – this is the pantomime you’ve bean waiting for!
It’s been over a decade since Jack and the Beanstalk was last performed by the Worcester REP on the Swan Theatre stage, and they are over the moon (or beanstalk) to be performing it once again. Following their record-breaking triumph from last year with Cinderella, the Worcester REP is hoping to make this year’s pantomime an even bigger success, and are incredibly excited to bring this magical adventure to life this Christmas from Monday 4th December to Sunday 7th January.
This year, the Worcester Repertory Company are excited to welcome back, the legendary Ian Good (Cinderella 2022), returning as both Director and the delightful Dame Dotty for what is his 48th pantomime along with fan favourite Nathan Blythe, who played Buttons last year, as the hilarious Silly Billy. Also joining the team, is James Hastings as the young and adventurous hero Jack, Aimée Cupper as Jack’s lovely best friend Jill, Terrelle Kay as the magical Fairy Stringbean and this year’s evil villain will be Darryn Watkins, as the Giant’s henchman Fleshcreep.
Ian Good, Director and also this year’s Dame, said “I’m thrilled to be back with the Worcester REP team once again for what promises to be a giant of a pantomime. After the brilliant success of last year’s record-breaking pantomime, Cinderella, I am excited to build on this and make this year’s pantomime better than ever! It has been great working with such a talented company and I cannot wait to be bringing you and all of Worcester, this mega musical of a pantomime!”
