Jack and the Beanstalk is the 30th annual charitable pantomime production presented by PwC as part of its Community Affairs Programme to support the local community.

PwC's aim is to bring joy to children from inner city schools and charities. Each year it gives free tickets to around 8000 children from local boroughs, often the only chance those children get to experience the magic of live theatre, and ticket revenues help contribute towards that experience.

Jack and the Beanstalk tells the classic story of a young man who becomes a hero to save his family, his young love, and his family's cow. The village of Dinglebottom is being terrorised by an evil Giant and his vile henchmen, and Jack needs our help. Come along to cheer, sing, hiss and boo as our unlikely hero and his band of helpers climb the beanstalk and find themselves in a winter wonderland. Can our hero rescue the Princess? Can he save Dinglebottom from the Giant? Can polar bears and penguins really dance?

Jack and the Beanstalk has been brought to life by around 200 PwC staff and pantomime alumni, both on stage and behind the scenes. Every year, the audience are amazed that this is an amateur dramatic group. Come along and see for yourself.
