It may be a mystery to the rest of the world but if you’re British then Christmas is synonymous with panto and they’ve got a real cracker of a show for us up at the Auditorium this year.

Starring Kelsey-Beth Crossley, (Scarlett from Emmerdale, Linda Lusardi’s daughter, half sister to the King brothers now mostly departed, do keep up) and our very own Julie Peasgood the show has everything you’d want in a pre Christmas extravaganza – great songs, plenty of slapstick and lots of jokes that go straight over the heads of the little ones but keep the Mums and Dads entertained.

Grimsby 10 - Daniel Whitley as Simple Simon and Mary Viscomi as Jack copy

Comedy comes from Bruce James as Dame Trot and Daniel Whitley as Simple Simon, while Lincoln actress Mary Viscomi is a suitably thigh slapping Jack.

Jack and the Beanstalk promises to be a gigantic family treat this Christmas with lots of singing, dancing and magical moments. The panto will be full of special effects, lots of surprises and some great comedy routines and is a show not to be missed this festive season.
