WITH two weeks to go before opening night, Valencia’s first ever, traditional British pantomime has sold out. Oh, yes it has!
This Christmas the enchanted tale of Jack and the Beanstalk hits the stage in Valencia, packed with side-splitting jokes, stunning costumes and all the usual pantomime fun.
Response to the panto classic has been huge, and director Cameron Hall has been delighted with the reception it has received. He said: “I have wanted to bring Pantomime to Valencia since I arrived over 3 years ago and it seems the people of Valencia are equally excited!”
Cameron, who runs the city’s dance school Baila con Cameron, is a former West End choreographer with many pantomimes under his belt. He said: “Jack and the Beanstalk will see a principal cast supported by more than 30 members of our community theatre team and promises to be the perfect way to put you in the Christmas mood.
“We have been amazed at how quickly the tickets have sold out, with families coming from all over the Communidad Valenciana. Pantomime is such a huge part of my childhood and we can’t wait to see families making memories at our production. Get ready to boo the baddies and cheer on Jack as we head up the beanstalk!’
Asked if more dates would be added to the run of performances, Cameron said that he would love to but straight after Jack and the Beanstalk, he’s flying back to the UK to direct a panto there.
However, it seems we can look forward to more fe fi fo fun in the future as he added: “Panto in Valencia is here to stay!”
The Christmas favourite will be performed on 3 and 4 December and anyone who missed out can contact firstname.lastname@example.org in case tickets become available.
