Jack and the beanstalk - Stourport Civic Theatre

Press Release 07/01/2012

Jack and The Beanstalk Pantomime

Friday 25th January to Saturday 2nd February 2013
Come and join in the family fun and support a local Pantomime.  Jack and the Beanstalk is on show at the Stourport Civic Theatre at the end of January.  This is Monday Night Group’s latest annual production, and follows on from the fun, entertaining and successful Pantomime last year, which was the hugely entertaining Dick Whittington.
The Pantomime is suitable for all ages, and follows the traditional story Dame Trott and Simple Simon being somewhat hard-up, resulting in Daisy the Cow being traded for some ‘gold beans’, which turn out of course, just to be beans.  These are thrown away, and mysteriously grow into a huge beanstalk.  The evil Giant commands his henchmen Slime and Slithe to kidnap Daisy and Jill to satisfy his giant appetite.  Jack seeks out Jill, and with the help of Fairy Astral and a magic Talisman sends the Giant and his henchmen into deepest Cyber space.  Squire Bottom, his wife precious and all ‘the little bums’ (their children), then celebrate in style with the lavish wedding of Jack and Jill.
Along with the experienced Monday Night Group cast are featured several wonderful dances from dancers from the Crescents Ballet School, Worcester.  Miss Chance provides all the fabulous dancers and choreographs dances to complement the mood with each scene of the production, including ballet, modern and contemporary pop dances.
The members of the group have great fun on and off stage, and the group serves a purpose too.  The proceeds from the ticket sales, well over 4,000 are sold each year, help contribute funds to the local community.  Monday Night Group is a registered charity, and every penny of profit is given back to groups in the Wyre Forest community in their May Presentation Evening.  In May 2012, the group gave away over £19,000 to over 90 groups and charities in the local area!
Please help support Monday Night Group and all the groups it serves.  All you have to do is buy some tickets, bring some friends and watch the show!  Laughs and entertainment are guaranteed.

All production dates, times and prices can be found on the group’s website.
