The team at Striking Productions returns this year to the Kingdom of Barrowvale with this year’s pantomine, “Jack and the Beanstalk”.

Fee Fi Fo Fum, we smell a panto that’s packed with fun!

Meet young Jack, a hapless, harmless, hopeless hero. Jack lives with his mother, Mudder Udder, his nine siblings, and their menagerie of pets. The town is also living in fear of a GIANT, and rumour has it that he eats children!

In a time where the cost of living is soaring higher than beanstalks, the greedy landlords have raised rents so much that Jack and his mother are forced to sell their two prize Charolais heifers. The naïve Jack sells the bovine beauties for a handful of beans. However, their luck is about to change when from the magic beans grows a beanstalk, climbing up to the giant’s house. There he finds a singing harp, a goose that lays golden eggs and some local missing children.

Through the traditional story, served with a Carlow twist, audiences will laugh, snigger and sometimes squirm uncomfortably at the local jokes. The show promises to be full of colour, costumes and the usual big production dance numbers.

Consider Lennon’s Restaurant for a beautiful pre-show meal. After the show make sure to factor in a visit to the VISUAL shop where a range of interesting book titles, local craft and childrens’ games make for the perfect stocking filler. Or why not consider a VISUAL voucher for your loved one this Christmas?
