The cast and crew of this year’s pantomime at the Theatre Royal in Bury St Edmunds have arrived in town.

They will spend a fortnight rehearsing Jack and the Beanstalk in an empty shop space at Cornhill Walk shopping centre.

Centre manager Chrissy Harrod posed for photos with the cast and crew.

The show is being directed by the theatre’s artistic director Karen Simpson and has been written by Chris Hannon.

Oliver Mawdsley plays hero Jack, with Louise Olley as Jill. Leonie Spilsbury makes a welcome return to the Theatre Royal as Wendy and the Giant’s wife.

Jack and the Beanstalk runs from November 27 to January 10.
