Jack and the Beanstalk Behind the Scenes: Panto rehearsals begin!

On Monday morning Jack and the Beanstalk rehearsals kicked off with a bang! The cast, crew, production team and Arts Theatre staff joined together for the first read through of the script - a favourite date in the pantomime calendar for many of us!

The script read through begins rehearsals every year, and it's a great chance for the whole Arts Theatre pantomime company to meet (over some classic panto jokes!) before a busy, fun and joyful festive period!

Here's a behind the scenes sneak peek of the cast in action...
