Review: Jack and the beanstalk, Charter Theatre, Preston

FE, Fi, Fo, Fum — come and see this panto packed with fun.

Written, directed and starring radio presenter Ted Robbins as Dame Trott, the performance was a hit with young and old.

Jack, played by Tom Milner, and Jill, played by Jodie Hamblet, were supported by a great cast who brought the production to life. Leah Bracknell, who played Zoe Tate in Emmerdale, gave a magical performance at Fairy Peapod, aiding Jack in his adventures.

And the Harper Brothers, back by popular demand, played slapstick double act Silly and Billy, who had the audience laughing in their seats. It was hard not to smile as they got the giggles and cracked terrible jokes.

The panto villain, Fleshcreep was convincingly played by Warren Donnelly.

The scenery was fantastic, and so was the giant, whose voice echoed around the theatre.

The various scenes were intermingled with dance displays from adorable children and energetic performers.
