Jack And The Beanstalk comes to the Compass Theatre
Wednesday 20 November: Festive fun is on its way as Hillingdon Council and the Compass Theatre present Jack And The Beanstalk.
This will be the tenth pantomime produced for the council by DKproDuKtions.
The show will run from Thursday 5 December to Sunday 5 January.
This pantomime is special because it includes an original song each year, which is taught to children in local schools. This year, pupils from Hayes Park School, St Matthew's C of E School and Laurel Lane Primary School learnt the song 'Reduce, Reuse, Recycle' - sung in the show by the green fairy - as part of a music lesson.
The pupils were filmed singing the song and a video of them singing it will be played during the show's interval on the big screen.
Cllr Richard Lewis, Hillingdon Council's Cabinet Member for Central Services, Culture and Heritage, said: "Pantomimes are a much-loved tradition during the festive season so I encourage people to buy their tickets for this excellent show before they sell out."
One lucky winner will win a family ticket of four to see the show on Friday 13 December at 7.30pm. To enter, please answer the question: In Jack and the Beanstalk, what does Jack swap his cow for? Email your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date is Sunday 1 December. The winner will be notified by Tuesday 3 December.
