Jack

jack7.30pm December 1-4 & 8-11 (Sat & Sun matinees at 2pm)

Many years after the Giant of Jack and the Beanstalk fame has been slain, the land in the sky is ruled over by a just and fair young Queen and her errant brother, the Prince. Meanwhile, in South London suburbia, two Croydon tykes, Jack and Jill, are persuaded to visit the magical kingdom by a passing Fairy. Once there, they join forces with the Queen and Prince and go west on a quest to find the magic harp, mislaid by the fleeing giant slayer. But all is not well as Hieronymus, the Queen’s Counsel, suffering delusions of grandeur, plots to overthrow the Queen and seize power.

An epic Christmas show spreading a great big dollop of festive yuletide magic for boys and girls young and old.

Contains loud noise, mild peril and giant toads, so best suited to children 5 years and over.
