Lee Mead .. Timeline
Jack and the Beanstalk first show .. 16 December 2017
After months of teasing with panto hints during gigs and interviews, it was finally announced
on 17 May that this year Lee has scored a home town gig for Christmas! He will be playing Jack in Southend's Jack & the Beanstalk
and 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 Mother Nature
- Bobby Davro as Simple Simon
- Robin Askwith as Fleshcreep
- David Phipps-Davis as Dame Trott
- Stephanie Clift as Princess Apricot
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.

published following the show's press night on 19 December 2017.
