PANTO season is not yet behind you thanks to an amateur production at Droitwich’s theatre.

The Norbury Players are set to present their version of Jack and the Beanstalk this January, featuring the Kirsty Purvis School of Dance.

The comedy production is suitable for all the family and even features a meerkat casting a spell over the village of Piddlington.

Evil Fleshcreep provides many opportunities for audiences to hiss and boo, with Jack battling the Giant to win the heart of Jill

and save the day.

Performances will start at 7.30pm on January 11, 12, 17, 18, 19, 24, 25 and 26 with weekend shows at 2.30pm on January 12, 19 and 26 and at 4pm on January 13 and 20.

Tickets costing £10 (concessions £9) are available by calling 01905 770154 or from the Friar Street box office on Tuesdays,

Fridays and Saturdays from 10.30am to 12pm and weekday evenings from 7pm to 8.30pm. Visit www.norburytheatre.co.uk for more information.
