Sneaky peek of cast of UK’s biggest pantomime at Birmingham Hippodrome in full costume!

Earlier this week we welcomed the full company of our pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk including our wonderful cast Jane McDonald (Enchantress)  Duncan James (Jack), Chris Gascoyne (Fleshcreep), Gary Wilmot (Dame Trot), Paul Zerdin (Simple Simon) and Matt Slack (Silly Billy) with Robyn Mellor as Princess Apricot.

They started to arrive from last Sunday and once the set was  finished being built the company went straight into rehearsals on stage.

At the moment (18 Dec pm) the first full  technical run through is taking place to ensure everything works and everyone knows where they need to be on stage, from lighting to sets, to special effects and of course the amazing 3D.   It really is going to be a big show!

Before the Tech we invited members of the media to attend a photocall on stage with the cast  (look out for pictures in the Express and Star, Post and Mail, nationals and BBC Midlands Today).

Tonight the company perform their first full dress rehearsal and we can’t wait to see it.

Here’s a sneaky peek of the full cast in costume taken today.  (photographer: Simon Hadley)

Jack and the Beanstalk opens tomorrow 19 December and runs until 1 February.    Click here to book tickets.
