George Critchley for PMA Productions Ltd brings his version of this traditional tale of Jack and The Beanstalk to life in Oswaldtwistle, Cannock and Colne this Christmas. Vikings and Norsemen told many tales while they lived in Britain and people listened to them – stories that were full of Giants, magic and magical things, such as Jack the Giant killer’s coat, shoes and sword. Like many stories re-told, like Chinese whispers, details would change, with new details created and others forgotten, and so, Jack the Giant Killer became the basis for Jack and The Beanstalk.

PMA Productions brand new production will feature a cow, magic beans and a beanstalk, instead of coat’s and shoes, but the sword is still required!

Meet our hero, Jack, who needs the sword as he climbs the Beanstalk to battle the Giant and his evil sidekick Fleshcreep, and hopefully rescues the Princess..

A fun musical, traditional pantomime for all the family is guaranteed for all the family at Oswaldtwistle Civic Arts Centre, Oswaldtwistle (for their 14th consecutive year in Hyndburn). The Prince of Wales Centre, Cannock (16th consecultive year as pantomime producers to Cannock since 2001), and The Muni, Colne from PMA Productions Ltd

Join us for this musical pantomime version of Jack and The Beanstalk at the these fabulous venues and we will have you rocking in the aisles…
