Jack and the Beanstalk

Cast of Jack and the Beanstalk

Panto fever came to Deal when The Guild Players staged their production of Jack and the Beanstalk to almost capacity audiences. The players took the audience on a fairy tale roller coaster ride through the land of make believe under the expert direction of Lei Cobb and Mary Kettyle. Each part of the show, from musical direction and costumes through to imaginative set design, was skilfully crafted. Jo Carnell gave a masterful performance as Jack, and Stephanie Young proved yet again what an asset she is to local drama by her outstanding portrayal of Simple Simon. Andrew Slade showed plenty of energy and enthusiasm in the role of Simple Simon’s mother and created a good rapport with the audience and other principal characters. Peter Ryder as the Giant’s henchman, Rancid, had the audiences constantly booing and hissing their appreciation. Newcomer Tony Grist appeared confident and at ease as the King and Charlotte Skinner made the perfect daughter and Princess. Sue Watson, as the fairy, kept the storyline flowing throughout. The Spice Girls provided the Giant’s cabaret entertainment and this brought tremendous audience appreciation. The Guild Players must be congratulated on another excellent production. With the success of Jack and the Beanstalk, there is no doubtthat the theatregoers of Deal will be eagerly awaiting next year’s panto offering.
