Jack and the Beanstalk Panto at Norwich Theatre Royal.

A cow for some magic beans?? One of our favourite fairy tales will come to life, no doubt with lots of silly fun, at Norwich Theatre Royal this festive season. Yes! The much-anticipated pantomime production for 2022 will be Jack and the Beanstalk. Opening at Norwich Theatre Royal on Saturday 10th December 2022 and running until Saturday 7th January 2023.

Jack and the Beanstalk tells the story of hero Jack who swaps his family’s cow for a bag of magic beans. By climbing the beanstalk, of the beans he planted, he finds himself on a GIANT adventure!

The show will be jam-packed full of slapstick comedy, laugh-out-loud gags, outrageous costumes, dazzling song and dance numbers and plenty of chances to cheer, boo and hiss. We cannot wait for some super Fee Fi Fo Fun!

An Early Bird Offer of £5 OFF all performances is available. Audiences will need to act fast, to take up this great offer, as it ends on 30th April 2022. Terms and conditions apply.

Actor, presenter, and local treasure, Joe Tracini, who won the hearts of the Norwich Theatre Royal audiences as Tommy the Cat in last year’s pantomime returns with his unique style of madcap comedy as our hero, Jack.

Richard Gauntlett, Norwich Theatre Royal.

Once again, donning a flamboyant dame costume on stage, Richard Gauntlett will play Jack’s Mum, Dame Trott. This will mark Richard’s 22nd pantomime appearance at Norwich Theatre Royal, and he cannot wait to be delighting Norwich’s audience once more.

Stephen Crocker, Norwich Theatre Chief Executive & Creative Director, said: “It’s lovely to be back with our festive pantomime! We were thrilled to welcome thousands of people to enjoy Dick Whittington and his Cat last Christmastime, and even more so that it has just been nominated by the Pantomime Association as Best Pantomime (over 900 seats). We know our audiences in Norfolk love pantomime and this year we are returning with a traditional favourite packed with all of the pantomime ingredients audiences want. It’s never too early to be planning Christmas fun, and Jack and the Beanstalk promises plenty of laughs, fantastic costumes and special effects to amaze all the family.”
