Completing the company are ensemble members Victoria Anderson, Paddy Jo Martin, Harry Robinson, Christina Shand, Beth Sindy, Jacob Thomas and Cameron Webb.

The production will be choreographed by Ruthie Stephens.

When happy-go-lucky Jack is tempted into selling his family’s beloved cow for a fistful of magic beans, he finds himself tangled in an adventure of epic proportions! Join Jack on his journey up an enchanted beanstalk as he tries to outwit a rampaging giant, all with the help of his larger-than-life mum.

This tall-tale is packed full of slapstick comedy, laugh-out-loud gags, stunning costumes, dazzling song and dance numbers and plenty of chances to cheer, boo and hiss.

Jack and the Beanstalk will run from 20 November 2021 to 2 January 2022, with press night on Thursday 2 December 2021. Tickets are on sale now from www.hackneyempire.co.uk.
