Jack and the Beanstalk will be at the theatre in Billet Lane, Hornchurch


It’s nearly panto time at the Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch – oh yes it is!

This year’s festive offering at the theatre in Billet Lane, Hornchurch will be Jack and the Beanstalk, from Decmeber 1 to January 12.

Boys and girls of all ages can join brave Jack on a thrilling adventure as he climbs the gigantic magic beanstalk to battle the dreaded Giant Thunderskull in his castle in the clouds.

Will Jack save the day and win the treasure?

From enchanted beans and golden eggs to evil goblins and a hungry giant, there’ll be magic, mayhem and comedy capers in one of the region’s most popular pantos - starring the Queen’s professional resident company of actor-musicians, Cut to the Chase.

The whole family can cheer, boo and laugh at all their favourite panto characters – the villainous Fleshcreep, the heroic Jack and Jill, hilarious Dame Trott, Simple Simon and the loveable cow Buttercup.

Supporting the theatre’s resident group of actor/musicians will be a young company of 24 super-talented local schoolchildren, who’ll be singing, dancing and playing various small roles including villagers, goblins and sparkly rainbow sprites!

Tickets are £14 - £23, with discounts for groups and families. Call the Box Office on 01708 443333 or visit
