As Christmas becomes what feels like a long distant memory, a theatre is thinking ahead and has announced this year’s festive pantomime.

Queen’s Theatre, Billet Lane, Hornchurch, will be putting on a production of the classic tale of Jack and the Beanstalk from November 28 - January 6 2019.

When Jack sells Daisy, his beloved family cow, for magic beans, he soon discovers they open up an unexpected world of thrilling adventure.

Jack and his dotty mum Dame Trott scale the sky-high beanstalk and work together to outwit the giant Bonecrunch and rescue Jill, the girl Jack loves.

Brought to you by the same team as last year’s record-breaking Beauty and the Beast and 2016’s Cinderella, this actor-musician version of the popular panto tale is peppered with pop hits from across the decades, bundles of audience participation and hilarious slapstick.

Tickets for this festive spectacular at the community venue ranges from £12.50 to £29 and are now on sale.

The theatre is also offering an Early Bird 10pc off discount if audiences book before March 31.

The Queen’s Theatre is committed to ensuring everyone can enjoy the pleasure of live performance and has confirmed it will continue to provide four especially adapted shows of Jack and the Beanstalk.

Tickets for a Relaxed Performance, which will take place on January 2 at 5.30pm and a dementia-friendly performance, on January 3 from 1.30pm, will be available.

There will also be the regular signed (January 3 at 6.30pm) and audio-described (January 4 at 1pm) performances.

But before everyone starts digging out the boxes of tinsel once again, a chilling production of the Alfred Hitchcock 1948 movie Rope will be performed from February 15 - March 3.

The thriller, which is about two socially adept men who commit murder for the sake of living dangerously, will star George Kemp and Hollyoaks and former Emmerdale actor James Sutton.
