Louie Spence revealed as star of Swindon Pantomime

The dance star will appear in this year’s production of Jack and the Beanstalk.

Spence will appear on the Wyvern Theatre Stage as The Spirit of the Beans in the pantomime from 4 December - 2 January. 

A spokesperson for the theatre said: “Follow Jack and climb a beanstalk of gigantic proportions to cloudland in this GIANT pantomime adventure. Doomed to sell his trusty cow, join Jack as he fights to outwit the evil giant and win riches beyond his wildest dreams!

“Expect laughs, music, special effects, magic beans and bundles of audience participation at Wiltshire’s biggest Christmas show.”

There will be a relaxed performance on Friday 10 December at 1pm. 

Sign language interpreted performances will take place on Friday 10 and Saturday 11 December at 1pm.

An audio-described performance will take place on Thursday 23 December at 1pm. 

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the 2020 pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk at the Wyvern Theatre had to be postponed until 2021.
