Fantastic festive fun at Jack and the Beanstalk press launch

With just over 10 weeks until Christmas, there was a fantastic festive feeling at The Capitol earlier this week as cast members of this year’s pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk came together with local media contacts for the official Press Launch. At the event, there was the chance to meet and chat, take photographs and find out what’s in store for what is anticipated to be another hugely successful production.

Jack and The Beanstalk is a brand new story of an ordinary boy on an extraordinary adventure, featuring a feisty fairy and a not-so-friendly Giant with some familiar faces to spot on stage.

Jack Trott (CBBC Star Olly Pike) and Simple Simon (Hollyoaks star James Fletcher) will be kept under control by their mother Dame Trott (Hywel Dowsell).

CITV Hi’Five’s Chris Edgerley will play the villain, Fleshcreep, the Giant’s Henchman.

Horsham’s Favourite, Richard Alan, will make a welcome return as King Crumble having performed in four of their previous productions.

Jill Greenacre, best known for playing Linda in The Brittas Empire, a long-running TV series in the 90’s, will fly on to the stage as Fairy Potter.

Completing the cast will be Lauren Osborn, making her pantomime debut as Princess Apricot.

Press interviews and photographs will be shared in various newspapers, magazines, websites and via social media in the lead up to opening night on Friday 8 December and throughout the run.

Nick Mowat, Producer, has confirmed that Giant Blunderbore will be voiced by Brian Blessed OBE. The highly acclaimed actore is well known for his booming voice and numerous acting roles, including I, Claudius, Blackadder and Flash Gordon to name a few. Members of the Cast will be making personal appearances at various public events in the build up to Christmas.

Further details will be available on The Capitol’s social media sites: Facebook: www.facebook.com/thecapitolhorsham,Twitter: @capitolhorsham #capitoljack and Instagram: thecapitolhorsham
