Current CADS production

Royston Town Pantomime 2020 Jack-&-The-Beanstalk-small

Tickets for the 2020 Royston Town Pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk are now on sale and you can buy yours either by visiting the Positickets box office site or by ringing the Box Office directly on 07925 674967

The 2020 show has been written by Tom Whalley (who wrote this year's hilarious Robinson Crusoe and the Pirates). Fearless juvenile Jack, his ‘daft-as-a-brush’ brother Simple Simon, and his long suffering mother Dame Trott live in a tiny cottage in the shadow of the terrible giant Blunderbore. With the rent overdue they have no choice but to sell their beloved pet cow Daisy. After tricking the Trotts into selling her for a bag of worthless beans, the villainous henchman Fleshcreep kidnaps the Princess for the giant's supper... Could Jack be the hero the village has been waiting for? Will he be able to rescue Daisy and Princess Jill in time? Perhaps those beans aren't as worthless as they seemed!

Nicky Paton is directing, with Louise Atkins as Musical Director. Performances will be on Friday 24 January, Saturday 25 January, Friday 31 January and Saturday 1 February 2020 with the usual 2.00 matinees on each Saturday and evening performances at 7.30 on all dates.
