The Grand Opera House’s Giant of a pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk is enthralling audiences with its magical 3D effects, fabulous song and dance routines for every member of the family and a more talented cow than even David Attenborough knows about.

Following the story of adventurous Jack Trott, played by Aidan O’Neill and his Mother Dame May McFettridge Trott, the fairytale has more thrills and spills than you can shake a bag of magic beans at.

Add Paddy Jenkins as the dottery King Crumble and local beauty Tanya Shields as his darling daughter Princess Apricot and the seeds are sown for a beautiful romance to occur.

Don’t miss the chance to see this fantastic tale told with wondrous sets, lavish costumes and magical 3D sequences at the Grand Opera House.

Jack and the Beanstalk runs until Saturday 21st January, with evening and matinee performances available. Tickets start at £11.00 and can be purchased via telephone on 028 9024 1919, online at or by visiting our Box Office located in the Theatre foyer.
