Panto: Jack and The Beanstalk

Event Date: 12 Dec 2019 - 5 January 2020

The seeds have been sown for a magical Christmas as Lighthouse, Poole’s centre for the arts.  Writer-producer Peter Duncan is to play his first ever panto Dame, opposite former Sugababes singer Amelle Berrabah and Connor Byrne, instantly recognisable to TV audiences from the Tracy Beaker series and the Dumping Ground

Giant Blunderbore is in a terrible rage. He shouts from above threatening to eat any villager who won’t pay their rent. Poor Dame Trott has to sell her precious cow Buttercup and sends her son Jack to market to get the best price he can. Jack is in love with Jill, the Squire's daughter and is easily fooled by the Giant's henchman Fleshcreep who steals Buttercup for a worthless bag of beans. Will Jack be the hero and save the village from the human chomping ogre, only the magical Garden Fairy knows the answer to that.

Come and see this year's planet-saving pantomime packed with songs, laughter and great spectacle. Warning: Don’t upset the Giant especially when he’s hungry!

This is the fourth year running that Lighthouse has co-produced its homegrown pantomime with Duncan Reeves Productions, the company headed by Olivier Award-nominated actor and TV presenter Peter Duncan and musical director Darren Reeves.
