The Barns Green Players are promising a giant of a panto to start the New Year.

Spokesman Nigel Currie said: “Jack & the Beanstalk will entertain you royally with everything you would expect and a whole lot more!

“It promises to be a laugh-a-minute romp with loads of songs, surprises, dancing and general joining in fun and silliness.”

He continued: “There will be a total of six shows performed over two weekends in the Barns Green Village Hall this January.

“The shows will be on Friday, January 16 (evening), Saturday 17 (afternoon and evening), Friday 23 (evening), and Saturday 24 (afternoon and evening).”

Zoe Munday and Warren Blanchard are jointly directing the production.

Zoe said: “We have already done a lot of planning for this year’s show, and I am so excited about all the tricks and special effects, scenery and costumes that we have lined up. The script is exceptional and with the very talented comic actors we have in the Barns Green Players it is shaping up to be one of our best ever shows.”

Warren, who is also chairman of the group, added: “At Barns Green Players we set ourselves very high standards, but we are always looking to improve our shows and add even more to the fun that the audience will have and we are looking forward to providing some surprises and entertainment for as many people as possible at the six performances”.

“The shows are aimed at all ages although the afternoon performances are particularly suitable for the very youngest children. There are singalongs and sweets for the kids and opportunities for the audience to join in with the fun.

“For the evening performances there is a licensed bar serving a variety of alcoholic and soft drinks as well as sweets. The afternoon performances begin at 2pm and evening performances at 7.30pm. If you are regulars at the Barns Green Players Panto you will know just what a terrific show they put on and if you haven’t been before you are in for a real treat.”

Tickets cost £10 for adults and £7 for children. There is a special price of £6 for all tickets on Friday, January 16.
