If you missed seeing a panto last year, it’s not too late.
The Station Theatre on Hayling Island is performing Jack and the Beanstalk, written by author Alan P Frayn, from tomorrow until Saturday, January 17.
This version of the fairytale goes back to tradition, filled with a cast of colourful characters.
Dame Dotty Dimple has two sons – Jack and his brother Simple Simon – and their cow Buttermilk.
They are joined on stage by dithering King Hubert, Queen Hyacinth, the lovely Princess Primrose and their slow stableboy Humphrey.
Director Malcolm Bain, 58, from Cosham, says: ‘It is filled with the old songs and dances – if you brought your grandkids along it would be similar to what you saw as a child.’
Performances are at 7.30pm, with 2.30pm matinees on Saturdays. Tickets: £8 adults, £6 children, call (023) 9246 6363 from 10am-noon or visit hiads.org.uk
