Jack and the Beanstalk Cast announcement     

Jack and the Beanstalk Cast announcement Following the announcement earlier this year that Dancing on Ice Judge, and West End theatre sensation Louie Spence and local favourite Kevin Johns will star in this year's Grand Theatre pantomime, Jack and the Beanstalk, the Theatre have announced further casting.

Swansea local and Wicked cast member Zoë George will play Princess Apricot. Zoë is no stranger to pantomime having made her professional panto debut alongside Jimmy Osmond in Swansea Grand's production of Aladdin in 2011. Zoë is currently performing in the national tour of Wicked.

The theatre has also announced that sought-after Swansea-based illusionist and talented stand-up performer Stefan Pejic will bring a little magic to the role of panto villain Fleshcreep.

The cast are also joined by hilarious panto comic Peter Piper as Simple Simon. Peter's television credits include Hotel Babylon and Holby City, and stage roles have included Gabrielle in the musical Boogie Nights which was critically acclaimed when it premiered in the West End.

Jack and the Beanstalk is produced by Qdos Entertainment, the world's biggest pantomime producer, in partnership with The City and County of Swansea.

Executive producer of Jack and the Beanstalk Jonathan Kiley said; "I'm absolutely delighted that Swansea Grand Theatre's pantomime will bring together such a talented cast, guaranteeing a fantastic Christmas treat for all the family. Work is already underway on a script packed with laugh-out-loud comedy, and creating the biggest beanstalk in Wales!"

Cabinet member for Regeneration, Robert Francis Davies stated,

"These are great additions to the already stellar cast. This pantomime is definitely going to be a GIANT of a pantomime. Roll on December!"

Jack and the Beanstalk is supported locally by Admiral.
