The Proper Pantomime Company bring their magical production of Jack and the Beanstalk to Reading audiences this Christmas. 

Expect The Hexagon to resound to the Giant's famous rumblings: Fee, Fi, Fo, Fum!  Yes - to The Hexagon he will come!

The panto opens on Saturday 8 December and comes from the team that presented the highly successful Aladdin at The Hexagon in 2006.

Join poor idle Jack and his mother Dame Daisy on their adventures as they try to raise money by selling the only thing they have left – Buttercup the family cow.

Top of the bill is Toyah Willcox playing the hapless Jack. 

Christopher Lillicrap, regarded as one of pantomime's top dames, reprises his role as Dame Daisy and is as compellingly unattractive, saucy, infernal, ingratiating and over the top as ever. 

Children will adore Buttercup the Cow, hot hoofing it to the Hexagon from her starring role in the hit Rock Musical Shake, Cattle and Roll. 

Look out for the beautiful Tania Whatley as the Enchantress, Simon Ludders (CBBC's Young Dracula) who plays the evil Burp and Harvey James as Silly Billy – he was a big hit with Hexagon audiences last year as Wishee Washee.

Come and join the gang for another magical family pantomime!
