The festive season made an early appearance in Liverpool today as an all-star cast officially launched the biggest panto in town, Jack and the Beanstalk at the Epstein Theatre.
LHK Productions return to the Epstein Theatre this Christmas with one of the world’s favourite fairy tales from Thu 11 Dec 2014 – Sun 4 Jan 2015 for an incredible 49 shows. As always the show promises to deliver the incredible fun of traditional pantomime with a fresh twist that made the acclaimed Cinderella, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Aladdin such huge, runaway successes.
LHK are renowned for bringing top stars to the stage in all of their productions and 2014 is no exception, in what promises to be the greatest celebrity cast yet.
Certain to get hearts fluttering right across Liverpool, ITV’s Towie and Splash star Dan Osborne is set to tread the boards for the very first time as he makes his panto debut as leading man Jack. Also coming to panto for the very first time is the Fairy Godmother of Big Fat Gypsy Weddings Thelma Madine – swapping the needle and thread for a magic wand and donning a fabulous frock of her own when she stars as the Fairy.
After entertaining audiences at last year’s panto as the Magic Mirror, Celebrity hairdresser and beauty guru Herbert of Liverpool makes a welcome return as the voice of the Giant. Brookside’s Suzanne Collins returns to the Liverpool stage as Mrs Fleshcreep and Grease is the Word’s Alison Crawford returns to the Epstein as Jill completing this year’s glamorous, star-studded cast.
This gigantic production promises a whole host of Christmas fun in another magical show at the Epstein Theatre. With magic beans in abundance, a beanstalk reaching the heavens, golden geese and hungry giants, this show really is too big to miss. Jack and the Beanstalk is the perfect family treat and runs from Thu 11 Dec 2014 – Sun 4 Jan 2015.
