Jack & The Beanstalk - On line
Get ready for a GIANT adventure with Jack and the Beanstalk Online
The Belgrade Theatre panto is back and coming to a screen near you!
This December, join Belgrade favourites Iain Lauchlan and Craig Hollingsworth for a GIANT on-screen adventure in Jack and the Beanstalk Online – Coventry’s first ever online pantomime!
Life has been turned upside-down in the village of Prickly Bottom. As if the Covid 17 ½ lockdown wasn’t bad enough, the villagers are also being plagued by an outbreak of theft, thanks to an evil Giant and his horrible henchman Fleshcreep.
When they steal the enchanted harp that helps keep Prickly Bottom safe and prosperous, it’s up to lockdown layabout Jack Trott to save the day. But can he turn over a new leaf in time to be the hero everyone needs? Find out when this one-of-a-kind festive experience brings the magic of panto into the comfort of your home, streaming via the Belgrade website from 1-31 December.
Specially created in response to restrictions on indoor performances, Jack and the Beanstalk Online is a studio-shot, broadcast-quality production, packed with seasonal silliness, spectacular costumes and amazing special effects. The show will be available to stream at home throughout December, or to watch via a series of socially distanced screenings at the Belgrade Theatre.
The production is written and directed by the Belgrade’s regular panto Dame Iain Lauchlan, whose career spans over 40 years in the children's entertainment industry. Best known as the creator of the BAFTA winning series The Tweenies, Iain has worked across a range of other popular children’s TV titles, including Playschool, Playdays, Fingermouse, Storytime and Fun Song Factory. Jack and the Beanstalk Online will be his 26th Belgrade Theatre pantomime.
