Where in Cheltenham can you find a Giant; a Princess; a Prince; a Unicorn; a Dame and a Clown? At the rehearsals for the Everyman Theatre’s pantomime, Jack and the Beanstalk of course!

The show promises to be an all-singing, all dancing, glitz and glamour spectacle which will be the most gigantic show ever. The talented cast and creative team met on Monday to start turning Sam Holmes’s hilarious script into life.

Sam also co-directs and stars as Fleshcreep. Jack and the Beanstalk is co-directed and choreographed by Nick Winston and features a cast including Tweedy the Clown; Kevin Brewis and Kane Verrall (Cinderella and Tweedy's REDUCED Pantomime) and introducing Darius James as Jack and Gabriela Gregorian as Princess Susan.

Sam said: “It’s so exciting to be back at the first day of rehearsals with a full cast and a full show. We had planned to stage Jack and the Beanstalk last year so I’ve had to makes lots of changes to bring it bang up to date. There really is something for everyone and it’s going to be truly magical.”
