BEANSTALK: BIRMINGHAM BRANCH
Jack's got his hands full, again
If our internet-shaking interview with Alison Hammond wasn't enough to convince you to bag tickets for the Hippodrome's production of Jack and the Beanstalk, then maybe December's ever-increasing sense of Christmas spirit will do it?
Hammond, who will play Spirit of the Beans, is just one of an outstanding list of cast members alongside Hippodrome favourite Matt Slack playing Jake Trot — back for his tenth year of stealing the show. Star of stage and screen Samantha Womack is Mrs Blunderbore and Doreen Tipton, fresh from turning on the JQ Christmas Lights, plays Doreen the Cow. Panto dame extraordinaire Andrew Ryan plays Dame Trot, Brummie local Alexanda O’Reilly is in the title role and West-End performer Billie-Kay plays Princess Jill.
Featuring stunning sets and costumes from The London Palladium, and bundle-loads of laughs, it's the panto Birmingham’s bean waiting for. Dec 16 to Jan 28
