Llangollen panto is back next week ... oh, yes it is!

* Cast members hard at work in rehearsals for Jack and the Beanstalk.

After a gap of three years due to the pandemic, Llangollen Pantomime Group are back with their 2024 production of Jack and the Beanstalk next week.

And they are also making a return of their traditional venue of Llangollen Town Hall when they stage the show from next Thursday-Saturday, January 11-13.

A group spokesperson said: "We haven’t put on a production since Pinocchio in 2020 for obvious reasons.

"We are also back at the town hall after several years of being up at the Pavilion.

"We have a new director this year in Louise Lyne, with her husband Dave Lyne as assistant director. Dave has written the script from scratch and it’s very funny.

"Although it’s their debut directing and producing a pantomime they have been on stage previously, performing in the Llangollen pantomime and Louise appeared in Llangollen Operatic's production of Calendar Girls."

The spokesperson added: "We have a total of 28 in the cast and although there's a few of the old - but not so old - cast and crew still kicking about it has been a pleasure to have many newbies this year, on and off the stage. 

"Our chairwoman Sharon Jones found out a couple of days ago this pantomime group is in its 40th year, which is wonderful. Coincidentally, the first production was Jack and the Beanstalk, which we were all thrilled to find out."

* Performances start in the evenings at 7.30pm and there's also a matinee on Saturday January 13 at 1.30pm.

Tickets are priced at £9 and £7 concessions. You can book online by scanning the barcode on the poster, by calling the group secretary on 01978 860297, or at Dee Valley Produce (01978 861805). Tickets are still available for the evening concerts, says the group.
