BGT finalist, local star & radio personality confirmed for Panto

2023 Panto Jack and the Beanstalk

Trinity Arts Centre are thrilled to confirm the cast for this year’s festive panto, Jack and the Beanstalk, which includes famous faces from ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent, TV & Radio, as well as one of Gainsborough’s own talented performers.

Television and radio personality Mikey Smith will take on the titular role of Jack Trott and has said that he’s “very excited to bring Jack and the Beanstalk to the beautiful Trinity Arts Centre, where I’ve performed before to children’s audiences and leapt at the chance to return. We have an amazing cast, just the best team, who can’t wait to share Christmas and a lot of laughs with you all!”

Steven Hall, who made the final of Britain’s Got Talent in 2011 with his hilarious dance routines, is set to take up the role of King Crackers. Steven said: “I am very much looking forward to playing the role of the King in this year’s Jack and the Beanstalk at the Trinity Arts Centre. I hope to raise a few laughs and bust a few moves along the way. I’m excited to see everything that Gainsborough has to offer and I’m sure it will be a yes from me.”

Singing sensation Immy Hayes will be returning, having performed as part of Trio Entertainment‘s panto last year, and said that she “can’t wait to be back at the Trinity Arts Centre Theatre this Christmas”. She added: “I’m so excited to be playing Princess Jill alongside such a talented cast, it’s going to be full of fun and laughter. The Arts Centre in Gainsborough is such a wonderful and welcoming place to perform, it’s going to be a great run and I look forward to seeing both new and familiar faces this year!”

Alex Hunt is also returning thanks to popular demand, as Dame Trott, with Gainsborough’s own Heather Peers joining them too – she’ll be performing as Fairy Beansprout.

In association with Trinity Arts Centre, Trio Entertainment, the team behind 2022’s acclaimed show ‘The Wizard of Oz’, will be presenting this GIANT of a Pantomime that’ll be full of beans and packed with ‘Fee, Fi, Fo, FUN!’

‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ will be at Trinity from 14 December to 31 December 2023, and you can book your tickets now via this link!
