Former Emmerdale and Coronation Street actress Hayley Tamaddon stars in Jack and the Beanstalk at New Brighton's Floral Pavilion from December 9-31.
Hayley, who plays the Vegetable Fairy, is also remembered for the dance skills that took her to first place in the 2010 Dancing on Ice series.
Joining her will be CBeebies' Joseph Elliot as Fleshcreep, Blood Brothers actors Sean Jones as Simple Simon and Joe Sleight as Jack, Tom Sterling as the King, Rachel Grundy as Jill and Oliver Brooks as Dame Trott.
On their farm in Merrydale, Jack, his mother Dame Trot and his brother, Simple Simon, haven't a bean to their name. Their friendly cow Daisy has gone dry, and even worse, the village is being destroyed by an evil giant, whose wicked henchman Fleshcreep steals the magic harp of Merrydale and kidnaps the beautiful Princess.
Can Jack save the day, retrieve the harp, and win the heart of the Princess? You bet!
Hayley said: “I love panto because it brings friends and family together every Christmas. You can come to the theatre, have two hours of escapism, and join in, singing, clapping, cheering and maybe even dancing in the aisles.”
