Look behind you! Christmas will be coming up fast and that means the return of pantomime to the Lighthouse Theatre in Kettering.

Jack and the Beanstalk was launched at the Lighthouse Theatre in Kettering today (Friday September 25). Carley Stenson, best known for her role in Hollyoaks will play Fairy Fuschia.

Also starring is Brookside’s Steven Pinder as King Custard while Emmerdale’s Kevin Pallister portrays the villainous Fleshcreep.

Join intrepid Jack on the adventure of a lifetime as he bounds up the beanstalk to do battle with Giant Blunderbore.

Does Dame Trott finally get her man? Can Simple Simon work out which end of the cow needs milking?? Will Clarabelle the cow remember all her dance mooooo-ves?

Find out in a pantomime that scales new heights, with a spectacular stomping giant and all the magic and mayhem of a truly traditional Christmas extravaganza.

It will be a show jam-packed with all of the essential pantomime ingredients, plus top class live music, a fabulous cast, dazzling sets and magic growing beanstalk that will be the talk of the Town!

It is the first time that Jordan Productions have bought their pantomimes to the Lighthouse Theatre who have been performing shows since 1993.

Carley Stenson said: “I worked with the same company on the pantomime in Eastborne last year. I was playing a villain so I’ll be trying to channel all of my inner goodness to play the Fairy.

“It is a wonderful live venue and we have got lovely big dressing rooms so all of us girls are very excited.”

Steven Pinder added: “I think Jack and the Beanstalk is one of the best pantomimes and this version is going to be spectacular.”

Jack and the Beanstalk can be seen at the Lighthouse Theatre in Kettering from Friday December 11 until Sunday January 3.
