Get ready for a GIGANTIC panto experience!

Climb to new heights with Jack and the Beanstalk, a FEE FI FO FUN pantomime for everyone to enjoy at Oxford Playhouse, from the production team that brought you the glittering Cinderella (2022/23).

Poor Jack can’t seem to help getting into trouble with his mum. Now he’s really landed himself in it by selling the family cow to a stranger for a handful of old beans. But hang on a minute! Those mysterious beans have started to grow…and grow… and GROW!

Join Jack and his friends on an adventure of a lifetime, as they scale the beanstalk and take on a Giant. Full of infectious laughter, brilliant storytelling, singing, dancing, cheering for the goodies and booing for the baddies, an Oxford Playhouse pantomime is fabulous festive fun for everyone aged 5 to 105!
