2. Jack and the Beanstalk

VISIT Keepmoat Stadium for another fun-filled fantasy from Chaplin’s Pantos to entertain and delight your children this coming Christmas.

Few stories capture the imagination of children more than Jack and the Beanstalk. They will be taken to the magical world of PantoLand where they will meet Jack and all his friends.

They will roar with laughter at the antics of Barmy Bosworth and Dimples the cow as they try to get the better of Mrs Lumpkin the comic dame, and gasp with amazement when the handsome prince appears.

All this is brought to life by a cast of top performers from the world of theatre and pantomime. It’s all good old-fashioned fun that you would normally see in a top line theatre.
