Polka Dot Pantomimes and the Thameside Theatre are delighted to announce the Pantomime you've all BEAN waiting for this Christmas – JACK AND THE BEANSTALK

Pantomime at the Thameside Theatre is always the highlight of the festive calendar and this year's show promises to be bigger and better than ever as we present a GIANT of a pantomime suitable for the whole family.

Get ready to roar with laughter and cheer our hero Jack on his magical journey to Cloudland as he battles to save his best friend Daisy the Cow! As always there'll be spectacular scenery, dazzling costumes, amazing special effects and lots of audience participation.

With a fabulous cast featuring some familiar faces and the biggest Giant in Pantoland it won't cost you a bag of magic beans but it will be FE-FI-FO-FUN for everyone, so book your tickets now!
