With popular music from the likes of Little Mix and Bruno Mars plus nods towards musicals including Matilda, Les Miserables and Chicago, there’s something for everyone to sing and dance along to and even got my mum up on her feet learning how to Whip and Nae Nae.

Panto Review: Jack and the Beanstalk
The key to creating a successful family pantomime is integration with the intended audience. This is not something that can take place overnight and for the last nine years, Simon Fielding has endeavoured to create the perfect Christmas entertainment for the residents of Basildon… Fielding evidently puts his heart and soul into this production but the pay-off is worth it, resulting in one of the most distinctive pantomimes in the country.

I’m heading to Basildon this year for the panto season. I’m looking forward to be working with SIMON FiELDING on Jack and the Beanstalk at the Towngate Theatre.
The pantomime runs from 2 December 2015 to 3 January 2016. For more information and tickets visit http://www.towngatetheatre.co.uk/index.aspx?articleid=3940.
