Jack and the Beanstalk production photos
Our festive panto extravanganza, Jack and the Beanstalk is now in full swing on the Main Stage.
Take a look at the Images & Video Gallery on the right for a sneak peek at some photos of the show.
Following his spectacular return to the Belgrade stage in last year’s panto, Coventry’s panto legend Iain Lauchlan will don the frocks once again to play Dame Trott.
Jack and the Beanstalk is set on Dame Trott’s farm in Prickly Bottom, where she lives with her sons Jack and Simon. The credit crunch is really biting as they haven’t a bean to their name; their friendly cow, Daisy, has gone dry and worse still the village is being destroyed by the evil giant Blunderbore.
His wicked henchman Fleshcreep has stolen the magic harp of Prickly Bottom and kidnapped the beautiful Princess. Led by hero Jack, the Trott family embark on an all-out adventure to save the day, retrieve the harp and win the heart of the Princess.
As ever, the tale of Jack and the Beanstalk is told in true Belgrade style with colourful characters, spectacular scenery, stupendous costumes, hilarious slapstick and bags of audience participation.
See it for yourself until Sun 5 Jan 2014.
