A NEW panto is being held in Wallingford to welcome people into the New Year with ‘laughter, song, dance and lots of colour’. 

The Sinodun Players will be presenting their latest version of Jack and The Beanstalk at The Corn Exchange with the regular well-loved characters of Dame Dotty Dimple and her sons, Jack and Simon and not forgetting their cow Buttermilk.

The story follows Jack as he tries to save Princess Charlotte from the Giant’s evil and hungry grasp.

With all the usual Pantomime comedy, the slapstick scene and lots of audience participation, the whole production will be full of singalong songs, a live band, colourful scenery and costumes.

Bookings are open for shows from January 13 to January 28 on Tuesday to Friday at 7:30pm, Saturday Matinees at 2pm and Saturday evenings at 6:30pm.
