The Alban Arena

Jack and the Beanstalk Pantomime

Lavish sets, hilarious jokes, and FE-FI-FO fun!

The Alban Arena | 9th December – 2nd January 2023

St Albans Civic Centre, St Albans AL1 3LD

REVIEWED BY KAREN & SYDNEY: The Alban Arena always put on a HUGE pantomime show, it’s the one that all the local schools visit as the production and cast are brilliant. This year Jack and the Beanstalk did not disappoint for Sydney’s first ever panto.

Longer than an average show (or film) but well worth it, with Shaun Williamson of ‘Eastenders’ and ‘Extras’ featuring in this year’s production. I wish my husband had been able to make it to get picked by the hilarious Ian Kirby to be the love of the Dame Trott’s life, so funny!

A new take on the classic Jack and the Beanstalk with Zombies, one by one picking off the cast. The costumes and set were such a sight for all of the little eyes – they were transfixed. The Eric Morecambe Centre are also hosting another panto favourite ‘Cinderella’ from the 10th – 30th December. Karen x
