An all-star cast will take to the stage of the Ipswich Regent to perform Jack and The Beanstalk.

The tale will be told by stage, TV and radio stars from December 16 until January 2.

The star line-up includes Britain’s Got Talent winner George Sampson as Jack, Regent pantomime favourite Andrew Fleming as Simple Simon, and Emmerdale’s Roxie Pallett as Jill.

The family fun show is being brought to the venue by Enchanted Entertainment and producer Guy Pascall.

Mr Pascall said: “What a fantastic pantomime Jack and The Beanstalk is going to be this Christmas at Ipswich Regent. For this year’s show we’ve been working on another breath-taking 3D projection sequence to add some extra magic to an already dazzling panto.”

If you enjoy jokes galore, this family fun show is made for you.

Councillor Bryony Rudkin, Ipswich Borough Council’s deputy leader, said: “A Regent panto is always one of the highlights of festive entertainment in Suffolk’s county town and we are looking forward to much mayhem, lots of laughter and boos and hisses when Jack and The Beanstalk opens.”
