Always a highlight of London theatre’s Christmas line-up, this year the annual Lyric Hammersmith pantomime is scaling new heights with a hilarious take on Jack And The Beanstalk – so we took a tour backstage, live on Facebook.
Led brilliantly by the wonderful Faith Omole (who plays Jack) and Kayla Miekle (who plays Daisy The Cow), Official London Theatre viewers delved into a world of golden egg-laying geese, creamy slop scenes (a panto essential!), and, of course, OXO cubes. Check out the tour below.

Jack And The Beanstalk has been penned by Joel Horwood, who wrote last year’s smash-hit Lyric Hammersmith panto Aladdin, and is co-directed by the theatre’s Artistic Director, Sean Holmes and Jude Christian, an Artistic Associate of the Lyric.
The award-winning comedian, composer and BBC Proms presenter Vikki Stone stars in the festivities at the venue for the second year in a row, in the role of Fleshcreep, joining Cherrelle Skeete (Harry Potter And The Cursed Child original cast) as the Fairy Godmother, as well as Omole and Miekle.
