With over 30,000 theatregoers attending pantomime at Wyvern Theatre every Christmas, the theatre are delighted to announce that Louie Spence will headline this year’s spectacular family pantomime Jack and The Beanstalk from 4 December 2021 to the 2 January 2022.
Louie Spence sprung into the nation’s consciousness thanks to the overwhelming success of Sky One’s Pineapple Dance Studios and Louie Spence’s Showbusiness, solidifying Louie’s reputation as an expert on all things dance.
In addition to his television experience, Louie has enjoyed an extensive stage career appearing in ‘Miss Saigon’ and ‘Cats’ and danced alongside Take That and the Spice Girls. Louie will play The Spirit of the Beans, his eleventh foray into pantomime, bringing with him the high kicks and high jinks he’s best known for.
Follow Jack and climb a beanstalk of gigantic proportions to cloudland in the spectacular family pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk. Doomed to sell his trusty cow, join Jack as he fights to outwit the evil giant and win riches beyond his wildest dreams!
With the Wyvern Theatre hallmark of comedy in abundance, stunning sets and beautiful costumes, Jack and the Beanstalk will be produced by Daryl Back in association with HQ Theatres, the partnership behind Wyvern Theatre pantomimes for the past 17 years.
Producer Daryl said, "I am so excited to be working with Louie and bringing Jack & The Beanstalk to Swindon. I worked with Louie a few years ago on Aladdin and he’s an absolute joy to work with. He has more energy and enthusiasm than anyone I know and I am sure that audiences are going to love his amazing pirouettes, along with his charm and wit in the role of Spirit of The Beans."
Theatre Director, Laura James, added: "We’re thrilled to be working with Louie for the first time at the Wyvern Theatre in this year’s ‘Giant’ pantomime spectacular, Jack and the Beanstalk. It’s a wonderfully exciting time for us as we begin plans to welcome local families back to the theatre this season and we cannot wait for the whirlwind that is Louie Spence to help us bring back some much-needed festive fun to the town!"
