After the success of Rapunzel the Lockdown Pantomime in 2020, we are delighted to invite you to join us for Jack and the Beanstalk! Here comes the Fee, Fi, Fo, FUN!

Pupils from across the UK are invited to take part in our end of autumn term lockdown pantomime!

In partnership with Charanga, St George’s TheatreSheringham Little Theatre and NYMAZ, Norfolk Music Hub are excited to announce Jack and the Beanstalk– a school friendly end of term celebration written especially by Nick Earnshaw.

Targeted at Primary students either in school or learning from home, this exciting new project will feature songs to sing along to, with accompanying resources which will be available on Charanga from October 1st.

On Thursday 16th December 2021, students across the UK will be able to tune in to our livestream and sing along with a live band. The performance will be signed and captioned to ensure it is accessible to all.

We encourage schools and pupils learning from home to dress up as your favourite pantomime character for the day. We’d love to see your rehearsal and performance videos or photos! Please tag us on FacebookTwitter and Instagram and share using the hashtag #AreYouPantoReady?

If you’ve got any questions about Jack and the Beanstalk please email

Get ready to climb a beanstalk full of adventure, laughs, songs and family entertainment!

Join lazy Jack as he gets used to life beyond lockdown, his trendy but embarrassing Mum (Dame TikTok), his love interest from the local council (Jill Weaver) and his pet Cow who has learned how to talk (Colin). Will they be able to get to the top of the Beanstalk and defeat the evil Giant?

From the team who brought you Rapunzel: The Lockdown Pantomime, which last year performed not only in theatres but streamed to over 200,000 school pupils around the UK.
