FEE-FI-FO-FUM, I smell lots of panto fun! Book now for Oxford's most GIGANTIC panto yet!

Scale new heights with Jack and the Beanstalk, Oxford Playhouse's spectacular family pantomime for 2017.  After getting into humungous trouble with his mother for selling their hapless cow for a handful of beans, Jack's dreams come true when they start to grow… and grow… and GROW.

Join him on the adventure of a lifetime as he outwits the giant and is reunited with his childhood sweetheart Jill...all with a little help from his friends…and you, of course!  

Add into the mix hilarious jokes, lots of sparkle and bucket loads of music and dancing - fabulous festive fun is to be had by all. So go on, get practising your boos and hisses and cheer for our Jack as he climbs to the top of the beanstalk. Who knows what surprises he will face but there is only one thing that’s for sure – it'll be the best panto in the land.
