CHRISTMAS in York wouldn’t be complete without a family outing to the pantomime!

York Stage producer Nik Briggs is excited to announce his company will be bringing a brand new professional staging of JACK AND THE BEANSTALK to the city this winter, billed as “a panto made in York for the people of York”.

Running from December 11 2020 to January 3 2021 for 40 performances at Theatre @41 on Monkgate, York, the 90-minute, Covid-secure show will feature a cast of eight laden with West End talent from Yorkshire.

“Our traditional family pantomime will be performed in a traverse setting, with the audience placed either side of a central stage.”

“Covid-secure safety measures will be in place and, for the first time at a York Stage show, Perspex safety screens will be placed between households and support bubbles so audiences can safely enjoy the show.”

Summing up what lies in store in Jack And The Beanstalk, Nik says: “With an exciting cast filled with West End talent, all born and bred in Yorkshire, and a creative team made up from the people who brought shows such as Shrek, The Sound Of Music and Hairspray to York, audiences can be assured of a night of true panto magic!”

“Expect glitzy sets and costumes, a show filled with singing and dancing, lots of laughs and, of course, a huge beanstalk! Audiences can book now for a giant slice of traditional Christmas fun at one of the city’s most magical, bean-sized theatres for all the family!”
