The classic panto Jack And The Beanstalk gets the full Lyric Hammersmith treatment this Christmas.

With plenty of magic beans, a loveable cow, an enormous beanstalk, a gigantic giant and a massive adventure, this year’s Lyric Hammersmith panto looks set to be the biggest ever.

Jack And The Beanstalk is the classic fairy tale like you’ve never seen it before, as a young, poor boy exchanges his cow for magic beans which lead him on the adventure of a lifetime – right into the path of a terrifying giant. But a potential fortune also awaits.

The award-winning comedian, composer and BBC Proms presenter Vikki Stone will perform in the Lyric Hammersmith’s pantomime 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. Faith Omole will play Jack, and the ensemble is built up of six young performers, as part of the Lyric Hammersmith’s commitment to nurturing young talent.

Jack And The Beanstalk has been penned by Joel Horwood, who wrote last year’s smash-hit Lyric panto Aladdin, and is co-directed by the theatre’s Artistic Director, Sean Holmes and Jude Christian, an Artistic Associate of the Lyric.

Jack And The Beanstalk will play from Saturday 18 November 2017 – Saturday 6 January 2018. Come and join Jack on his quest for fortune, as Jack And The Beanstalk explodes onto the Lyric stage with wonderful characters, live music, dancing, singing and loads of laugh for families.
