New Jack swings to Radlett Centre for panto season

PANTO time is fast approaching and The Radlett Centre has already launched its seasonal offering, Jack and the Beanstalk.

Last week members of the cast dressed in costume – made by themselves at home – at the theatre where they will be performing the pantomime from Saturday, December 11, until Sunday, January 2.

The traditional-style panto is being produced by Upstage Productions and will be their 12th pantomime for The Radlett Centre.

Rob Copeland plays Jack with Jill played by Rachal Olivant and Bradley Fricker adding a splash of humour as Jack’s brother Simple Simon.

Mark Faith is the aptly-named Fleshcreep, Tarah McDonald the magical Fairy Peapod and Gavin Ashbarry is the pantomime stalwart, the Dame.

A chorus of local youngsters support the cast – and there is a Giant too.

Tickets range from �13.50 to �16.50 and there are two performances most days including Christmas Eve and Boxing Day. Further details can be obtained from the box office on 01923 859291.
