Cave Players are once again presenting their annual pantomime at North Cave Village Hall in January 2019, reviving Jack and the Beanstalk for the first time in 22 years.
It's their 33rd pantomime and the third time they have taken on this giant of a show since the group’s launch back in 1986 - however, the last occasion was way back in 1997. A classic pantomime, the group thought it about time they once again told the tale of a lad selling a cow for some beans- which overnight grow into a blooming big beanstalk.
Dame Hazel Nutt and her sons Jack and Nobby, live in the village of Tingley Bottom. They run the village dairy, and have one cow called Patricia. The village is a plagued by a giant and his owner, Lurgi, who live in the clouds. Can the village escape from this torment?
With a mix of members new and old including new Principal Boy Andrea Russell, a new script from member Rob Adamson, and live music - this pantomime once again promises to provide a few hours of laughs and some ideal family entertainment for the dark days of January.
This year Cave Players are supporting Health Stars, a charity which aims to provide some extra 'sparkle' to the services of the NHS. Donation boxes will be available throughout the week to support this worthy cause.
To further accommodate young families, this year there is an extra matinee on Saturday 19th January. The show then continues Sunday 20th (2pm matinee), Tuesday, Thursday and Friday (7pm) and finally Saturday (2pm and 7pm).
Tickets are available at www.caveplayers.co.uk or by telephoning 07817 487776.
