Jack and the Beanstalk at Harpenden Public Halls
PANTOMIME season is over isn’t it? Oh no it’s not in Harpenden where Jack and the Beanstalk is being performed in the Public Halls from next Wednesday to Saturday, January 25 to 28.
Hurst Children’s Theatre Group (HCTG) is putting on a pantomime for the sixth year and the story is the traditional one other than a two-headed Giant played by two of HCTG’s dads.
The main parts are taken by elder members of the company aged between 13 and 18 with three to six year olds playing the Little Beanies.
The show, which starts at various times on the four days, features ghosts, singalongs, baddies, dances and plenty to laugh at.
HCTG is a local, family-run theatre group which is opening a branch in St Albans in February.

Jonas, who lives in Harpenden, used to be a TV presenter and owns a presenter training company.
