Rehearsal images have been released for Hackney Empire’s 2015 Christmas pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk starring the Empire’s own Olivier nominated dame Clive Rowe as Dame Daisy Trott, Olivier Award-nominee Debbie Kurup as Jack and Hackney Empire favourite Kat B as Snowman.

The full cast includes: Jocelyn Jee Esien, Tony Timberlake, Julia Sutton, Darren Hart, Lori Barker, Leon Sweeney, Emanuel Alba, Frances Dee, Jonathan Prestney, Katie Shearman, Dale White and Georgia Oldman with Sharon D Clarke as the Voice of Davina and Matthew Kelly as the  voice of Giant Blunderbore.

In true Hackney style the production will feature a break dancing cow, bonkers baddies and the scariest giant ever, outlandish costumes and glittering sets by Lotte Collett, buckets of silliness, tons of audience participation and full-on show stopping songs performed by a kickin’ live band.

Jack and the Beanstalk will run from 21 November 2015 to 3 January 2016 at Hackney Empire.
