Jack and the Beanstalk casting news .. 12 April 2012
Lee Mead 'Jack & the Beanstalk' - Southampton, Dec 2012/Jan 2013 Exciting news broke today of a future project for Lee that once again took his fans by surprise ... but we've come to expect nothing less! Lee will make his panto debut as the eponymous Jack in QDOS Entertainment's 'Jack and the Beanstalk' at Southampton's Mayflower Theatre next Christmas.

He will be part of an all-star line-up featuring Julian Clary as Spirit of the Beans and Nigel Havers as Fleshcreep, with Paul Zerdin (and Sam) making a special guest appearance as Simple Simon. I can't wait! ... oh yes you can! ... oh no I can't!

Local press covered the announcement like this:

QDOS Entertainment is the world’s largest pantomime producer and Jonathan Kiley, Executive Producer for Jack and the Beanstalk said, “We are delighted to have such a superb cast for this year’s pantomime which will also feature fantastic and unmissable 3D special effects. The production has got something for everyone including an abundance of laughs, sensational musical numbers and fabulous sets and costumes. Southampton has never seen a pantomime on this scale before and I am sure the production will delight audiences of all ages.”

Dennis Hall, Mayflower Theatre Chief Executive said, “It is fantastic that we can bring traditional pantomime back to Southampton with the biggest panto producer in the business. We listened to our audiences who wanted a return to family pantomime, and boy are they in for a treat here.“

The show will open on Saturday 22 December 2012 and runs until Saturday 19 January 2013.
