2015 Pantomime




Synopsis

The lonely princess Davina mysteriously disappears one morning while out for her walk in the palace garden and the queen offers half her Kingdom and her hand in marriage for her safe return. We meet the widow Sprat and her two sons Jack and Billy who are always financially strapped and their land lady the Baroness has delivered an ultimatum that if they can't pay the increase in rent she will throw them out of their house.

In desperation they agree that the only solution is to sell their cow Daisy, so jack takes her to market to sell her. On his way he meets the good fairy Sugar Plum who gives him a bag of gold but the wicked witch Grimada changes the gold into beans.

Widow Sprat gets very upset when Jack returns and throws the beans into the garden and overnight this grows into a giant Beanstalk reaching up to the clouds. Seeking their fortune the Sprats climb the Beanstalk and there we encounter the witch Grimada 's employer a giant with a difference. Once there all sorts of things happen, will they succeed? Let's wait and see!
