Jack and the Beanstalk
The seeds have been sown for a magical Christmas as Lighthouse, Poole’s centre for the arts. Writer-producer Peter Duncan is to play his first ever panto Dame, opposite former Sugababes singer Amelle Berrabah and Connor Byrne, instantly recognisable to TV audiences from the Tracy Beaker series and the Dumping Ground
Giant Blunderbore is in a terrible rage. He shouts from above threatening to eat any villager who won’t pay their rent. Poor Dame Trott has to sell her precious cow Buttercup and sends her son Jack to market to get the best price he can. Jack is in love with Jill, the Squire's daughter and is easily fooled by the Giant's henchman Fleshcreepy who steals Buttercup for a worthless bag of beans. Will Jack be the hero and save the village from the human chomping ogre, only the magical Garden Fairy knows the answer to that.
Come and see this year's planet saving pantomime packed with songs, laughter and great spectacle. Warning: Don’t upset the Giant especially when he’s hungry!
This is the fourth year running that Lighthouse has co-produced its homegrown pantomime with Duncan Reeves Productions, the company headed by Olivier Award-nominated actor and TV presenter Peter Duncan and musical director Darren Reeves.

Go green to Poole’s planet-saving panto
Morebus are proud to be the official travel partner of our planet-saving pantomime, Jack and the Beanstalk, this year!
Did you know? One full double decker bus can take as many as 75 cars off the road which not only reduces nasty emissions, but congestion too; making the roads clearer and cleaner! Last year, morebus invested £7.2 million in 41 brand new buses which all have the latest Euro VI engines; emitting less NOx emissions than an average diesel car! With over 20 routes stopping just outside Lighthouse Poole all day and all night, the bus is by the far the cleanest, greenest and cheapest way to get to this year’s show! So leave the car at home and help to do your bit for Poole’s pollution and congestion this Christmas…
