JOIN US FOR SOME FE FI FO FUN AT MILLENNIUM FORUM’S GIANT PANTOMIME THIS YEAR!
By Catherine Ming | Sep 04, 2023 | News
With the kids all settled back into school, the countdown is now on for the festive season and the biggest panto in town! The Millennium Forum has a long standing tradition of producing the finest Christmas pantos (Sleeping Beauty in 2021 was even shortlisted in the Best Panto category in the UK Panto Awards) and this year’s offering – Jack & The Beanstalk – promises to be the must-see show of the festive holidays!
Conal Gallen leads an all-local professional cast in Jack & The Beanstalk which opens at the North West’s premier theatre on Thursday 30th November and runs until Sunday 31st December. This year sees the Donegal comic reprise his role as Dame Trot, with local man, Dylan Reid as Jack, Aodhan Kehoe as Silly Billy, Karen Hawthorne as Flesh Creep, Enya Loughlin as Fairy Sweet Pea and Corrie Early as Princess Jill.
A gigantic beanstalk, Caroline the cow, magic beans, a goose that lays golden eggs and the nastiest of giants – it’s panto time again at the Forum! Telling the story of peasant boy Jack and his attempts to please his impoverished mother and win the hand of Princess Jill, JACK AND THE BEANSTALK remains one of the best-loved pantomimes of all time.
A Christmas pantomime is a Derry tradition where many memories are made and Jack & The Beanstalk at the Forum this year promises to be the best yet! This year’s show is packed with great song and dance routines, hilarious comedy, dazzling scenes and magical special effects that all the family will enjoy.
Proudly sponsored by the Richmond Centre, the North West’s biggest pantomime is sure to be a hit with audiences far and wide. Grant some wishes of your own this December and bring all the family for some magical Christmas memories.
