Gi­ant ap­plause for Jack and the Beanstalk panto

Argyllshire Advertiser - - LEISURE -

Act­ing Up Ar­gyll opened its pan­tomime on Fri­day De­cem­ber 14 to a great re­cep­tion.

Jack’s ad­ven­tures up the beanstalk to save his town was full of bizarre char­ac­ters, witty reper­toire and funky dance moves. This seems like the town to be. Jack, played by Daisy Carter, has to res­cue the King Be­tram’s (Marie Hub­bard) princess Demelza (Rhona Love) from the ‘gi­ant’ Blun­der­bore, played by Fin­lay Love, and maybe grab a magic to­ken or two so that his mother Dame Trot, played by Oliver Sum­ner, can eat now that Daisy the cow (Luke Grat­tan) has stopped giv­ing milk.

Other mad­cap char­ac­ters in­clude Sim­ple Si­mon, played by Cather­ine Hub­bard, Flunkit, played by Nina Watt, trou­ble­maker Slime­ball, played by Anna Turner, and Edena the Eco-Fairy played by Josephine Boase.

The cho­rus was made up of Lo­gan Al­lan, Ewan Fer­gu­son, Bea Cat­ter­well, Toby Mac­Don­ald, Arasi Kasir­a­jan, Ella Pol­lock and Suzanna Whit­tle.

It was plain to see ev­ery­one on stage had fun and the au­di­ence did too, with ev­ery­one singing along with the songs.

A great ef­fort by ev­ery­one in­volved.
