Take a pinch of fairy-tale, add a splash of song and dance; stir in some comedy and garnish with magic.
The result is a delicious pantomime that has families flocking to Mansfield’s Palace Theatre in their thousands each Christmas.
Here at the Chad we’ve teamed up with with the Palace to offer one lucky reader the chance to win a family ticket for this year’s star-studded show, Jack and the Beanstalk.
Casualty star Rebecca Wheatley, Neighbours veteran Mark Little, Craig Ansell and Adam Moss are just some of the big names who will be taking to the stage. The lead role of Jack will be taken on by the talented Bradley Judge who fits the role perfectly.
And audiences are in for an extra treat this year as the show is mixing up the traditions of panto with modern twists with amazing 3D effects. Without giving too much away, the giant is gigantic and the traditional ghost gag will never be the same again!
