Jack and the Beanstalk
9th – 31st December
If you are looking for a festive treat this Christmas come to Norwich Puppet Theatre to see a magical puppet pantomime version of Jack and the Beanstalk.
Last year, writer, director and puppeteer Mark Mander created a smash-hit version of Cinderella using elegant string puppets. To create an exciting contrast this year, Mark has chosen traditional glove puppets to bring Jack’s adventures to life.
Glove puppets are fantastic at physical comedy, making them perfect for panto! Their knock-about humour is well suited to a fabulous adventure story like Jack and the Beanstalk, and this year’s cast of puppeteers includes one of the most skilled glove puppeteers in the country, Ronnie Le Drew. Ronnie is well-known as the man behind Zippy from Rainbow, but he has also performed puppetry alongside one of the most famous glove puppets in the country – a certain Sooty, so Jack will be in good hands!
Jack and the Beanstalk features beautiful multimedia miniature sets, glittering costumes and some of the best puppetry in the UK.
The laugh-out -loud comedy is suitable for the entire family, so come cheer Jack and his faithful cow, Pat.
Just what is at the top of the beanstalk? – a magical pantomime, that’s what!
Be dazzled, delighted, and entertained by this unique and magical puppet pantomime for ages 4 to 104!
