The Andrews Panto & Plays Society (TAPPS) performed the pantomime 'Jack and the Beanstalk' at St Andrew's Church Hall, Bedford Street, Crewe in mid-January this year.
In the panto Jack exchanged his cow for some magic beans. The beans grew overnight into a beanstalk which Jack climbed, arriving at a magical land ruled over by a Giant.
Jack and the Beanstalk featured a wonderful mixture of performers, music and dance routines and general pantomime traditions. There were also refreshments during the interval and a raffle.
The pantomime profits will be shared between St Andrew's Church restoration fund, St Andrew's Church Hall for additional lighting, and Cancer Research UK.
TAPPS Panto Director Fred Allman said, "The cast and crew put a lot of effort into this production over the past several months. We hope that everyone enjoyed our annual pantomime. We are very grateful to Tesco Crewe, Hall Smith Whittingham solicitors, Crewe Alexandra Football Club and Goodes Decor for their generous sponsorship. Our next project is a variety show to be staged in early June."
TAPPS was formed in November 2014 and this was their second pantomime, following 'Little Red Riding Hood' in January last year. Along with stage productions TAPPS also have a social side which includes theatre visits, country walks and dining out.
