FEE… FI… FO… FUM… THEATRE’S BACK FOR EVERYONE!
BRITAIN’S GOT TALENT WINNER GEORGE SAMPSON TAKES THE LEAD ROLE IN ‘JACK AND THE BEANSTALK’ AT THE TYNE THEATRE & OPERA HOUSE THIS COMING HALF TERM
We’re back in business……..Oh Yes We Are…………
At the end of May, during the school half-term, the Tyne Theatre & Opera House will be presenting their socially distanced family pantomime ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. The production will be the first show of 2021 with an audience at the venue and stars Britain’s Got Talent winning dancer George Sampson as the panto’s all action hero ‘Jack’ and the Westgate Road theatre is looking likely to sell out their entire run for the half-term week.
Performing alongside George Sampson in ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’, which runs from Saturday 29th May – Sunday 6th June 2021, are some of the North East’s favourite panto talent including the return of Tyne Theatre funny-man Charlie Richmond as Simple Simon, Karen The Mam’s Lewis Denny as Dame Trott, stand-up comedian and actor Micky Cochrane as the Giant’s henchman Fleshcreep and Gateshead’s Robyn McEnaney as Jack’s sweetheart Jill.
Director Guy Pascall said:
“It’s nice to be sharing some good news after the past year we’ve all had and our ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ pantomime is going to be a real treat for Newcastle families over the half-term school holidays. I can’t wait to see the audience’s reaction to watching Britain’s Got Talent street-dancer George Sampson re-creating his world-famous winning dance routine to “Singin’ in the Rain” for this panto”.
Producer Jezz Weatherall said:
“The production is a specially designed 75 minute, socially distanced, rib-tickling family pantomime, with a reduced capacity and no interval to minimise crowding. We only have a very limited number of tickets for this show, so if you want to join in the fun and laughter at the Tyne Theatre & Opera House I would advise booking early to avoid missing out”.
