An Anglia TV legend is to star in a pantomime as Fairy Hasbean. 

Helen McDermott will be dusting off her magic wand and fairy costume again this year to join a talented young cast in Jack and the Beanstalk at Beccles Public Hall and Theatre.

Multi-talented Dan Smith of “Sound Ideas” not only makes all the costumes but also directs and produces, as well as playing Dame Betty Trott in a sparkling production of “Jack and the Beanstalk”.

Join our hero Jack on the adventure of a lifetime.

Doomed to sell his trusty cow, Jack and his family fight to outwit the evil Giant.

Expect laughs, music, special effects and bundles of audience participation in this giant of a pantomime.

You’d happily trade a handful of magic beans for “Jack and the Beanstalk” tickets at Beccles Community Theatre!

Fe Fi Fo Fum, we smell Christmas fun!

The foot-tapping show runs from December 16 until January 2.
