Something giant is happening at the Alhambra Theatre this Christmas with the arrival of the annual pantomime.

This year’s offering from the Dunfermline venue is ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’, starring Jane McCarry of ‘Still Game’ and Colin McCreadie of ‘Taggart.’

And we have tickets worth £120 to give away for the show!

Claire Fletcher, PR manager for the Alhambra said: “This year’s pantomime, ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ is sure to amaze audiences of all ages, with spectacular sets, and stunning special effects and costumes.

“Following the success of last year’s pantomime, ‘Cinderella’, which received fantastic reviews from press and audiences alike, ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ is sure to thrill.

“Here at the Alhambra we are very keen to continue building on our ever-growing reputation for offering one of Scotland’s biggest and best pantomimes.

“This year’s fantastic all-star cast, led by Jane McCarry, is one of the best in the country.”

The show’s writer and director Russell Lane is looking forward to his first pantomime at the Alhambra Theatre.

He said: “The story of Jack and the Beanstalk is a magical one and we have brought together a great cast, in fact an international cast. They come to us from all four corners of the job centre, and I am sure you will love them all in this truly spectacular pantomime.

“Indeed if you are an animal lover you will love the show even more because we have a cow, elephant, camel and a gorilla and even mice all jostling for centre stage.

“Just to make sure the cast all behave themselves, I have taken a part in the show myself!

“I am playing the provost of Dunfermline. A mighty role about a mighty man, no laughter please, save it for the show. See you all in panto land!”

‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ runs at the Alhambra Theatre, Dunfermline, from December 11 to 28.
