For Settle’s first ever pantomime, she will be joined by Horrible Histories’ Richard David-Caine as villainous Luke Backinanger, with Alex Lodge returning as Jack, and the hilarious Bob Golding returning as Dame.

Settle said: “I am absolutely thrilled to be appearing in my first ever pantomime, Jack and the Beanstalk, at Royal & Derngate in Northampton.

“Panto is such a beloved institution in this country and I have always wanted to be a part of one. It’s going to be an incredible experience and just what we need for this 2022 festive season… I can’t wait!”

Jack and the Beanstalk will run from Friday 9 December 2022 to Monday 2 January 2023.

Produced by Evolution Productions, written by Paul Hendy and co-directed by Emily Wood and Bob Golding, Jack And The Beanstalk promises to be spectacular, top quality entertainment with lavish sets, a hilarious script, knockout vocals and fun for all the family.

Jo Gordon, Chief Executive at Royal & Derngate said: “We’re delighted to have Keala Settle joining our panto cast this year, and to be working with the same great team that made Dick Whittington such a success last year.

“Christmas is such a special time of year, when many children are introduced to theatre for the first time, and Jack and the Beanstalk promises to be one of our greatest pantomimes ever!”
