Lee Mead .. Timeline
Jack and the Beanstalk casting news .. 17 May 2017
Lee has been teasing us with panto hints during recent gigs and interviews though, as usual, had given nothing away... but today (to use his words) the cat's out the bag! And he's going home... playing Jack in Southend's Jack & the Beanstalk
, he will be able to make the most of the short stroll to his home by the sea and enjoy maximum family time over the holiday period.
He is joined by:
- Stacey Solomon as Spirit of the Beans
- Bobby Davro as Simple Simon
- Robin Askwith as Fleshcreep
Of course, it's a role Lee has played before, in his very first panto in Southampton
back in 2012/13 - it has plenty of scope for his cheeky, comic side and I'm intrigued to see how much his 2017 Jack is influenced by another four years' panto experience! I'm sure he will also be very happy to be reunited with 2013/14 Robin Hood
co-star, Bobby Davro, with whom he has remained good friends since.
It's a shorter run than we've been used to in recent years (my bank manager will be pleased!) - just three weeks - and tickets have been on sale for a while so book soon
as they will no doubt sell even faster now casting has been announced!
