2018 Pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk

2018 Jack and Beanstalk

Ever been to a Pantomime?  It’s very much part of the British culture that each Christmas, over-the-top fairy tales are told live on stage, often performed by famous tv actors.  There are certain conventions that are followed in each show, our children’s favourite being the audience participation.

In the Netherlands, the AATG put on an amazing production each year.  In 2015 we went to Beauty and the Beast.   In 2018, it was Jack and the Beanstalk.  My girls were particularly excited to be able to meet the characters after the show.  They also loved seeing their friends who have taken part for many years now.  It’s a great experience for kids to go through the whole process of rehearsals and then the shows.  My girls would like to be in next year’s show, we’ll see.
