Jack and the Beanstalk

The creative team behind last year’s ‘MAGNIFICENT’ (Hunts Post) and ‘LEGENDARY’ (Cambridge News) smash-hit production of Dick Whittington are back again, with a giant of an adventure that’s perfect for the whole family as this years panto is Jack and the Beanstalk!

Featuring all your favourite pantomime characters and Cambridge Arts Theatre‘s trademark blend of songs, laughter, joy and magic, make it a Christmas to remember with a visit to the home of family entertainment. Plus, this years cast are just as great too…

Tony Christie is bringing the magic of Amarillo to Cambridge this Christmas! Most famous for his Number One hit single ‘Is This The Way to Amarillo’, Tony has had a long and successful music career including acclaimed songs such as ‘I Did What I Did for Maria’ and ‘Avenues and Alleyways’ as well as a celebrated West End performance in Dreamboats and Petticoats in 2010. He makes his Arts Theatre debut as The King… of Amarillo!

Liza Goddard will be bringing her sparkle to help our hero on his adventures as the Good Fairy. Liza is much loved for her roles as the glamourous jewel thief Philippa Vale in Bergerac, Mrs Jessop in Woof! and Clarissa ‘Clancy’ Merrick in Skippy the Bush Kangaroo.

Stephen Beckett returns to Cambridge Arts Theatre for his fourth role as the pantomime baddie, this year as the evil Fleshcreep. Stephen is best known for his television roles in The Bill and Coronation Street and extensive stage experience including the acclaimed West End production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

They join Cambridge’s #1 pantomime dame, the hilarious Matt Crosby as Dame Trott in his twelfth pantomime at the Arts Theatre and Holly Easterbrook (Dick Whittington) as our hero, Jack Trott.
