Pantomime Treat

on January 26, 2017

Today a travelling theatre company came into school and put on a show for us all (Oh yes they did!).

Read on to find out what our Year 5 children thought.  

Today we had a visit from the M and M Theatrical productions they performed Jack and the Beanstalk. There was loads of singing as well. The four actors performed Jack Trott , Miss Trott , Squire Bogy and Jill . In the story Jack needs money so he sells the cow for some magic beans. The plant grows and takes him into a cloud world. Where he becomes friends with a giant. He gets 4 golden eggs, and saves his family.

We thought it was hilarious!

Oxenhope Pantomime: Jack and the Beanstalk

The pantomime was on Thursday the 26th of January 2017.

It was quite a good play actually even though there was only four people performing. If I could rate it out of 5 stars it would be 4 stars because I didn’t think the song ppap (pen pineapple apple pen) was appropriate but it was very funny still. It was performed by M&M Theatrical Productions. Here is a list of the cast: Jack, Jill, Jack’s mother, Squire Bogey, Buttercup, Humpty Dumpty, Mother Hubbard, the Giant, the Giant’s Baby and Diddle the cat.

The play was amazing for everyone from the receptions to the year 6s. It was probably the best pantomime that our school has ever seen.




We really liked the panto of Jack and the Beanstalk. Our favourite parts were when the old granny sang PPAP [pen, pineapple, apple, pen.] and the giant baby came out and started dancing. A lot of people liked it when the cat came out and started chasing Jack. We loved it all there was nothing we didn’t like. The sound effects and lighting were great. The background was amazing as well. We liked  how the acting was really good and the panto was really funny it made us laugh.

Jack and the bean stalk by M-M productions was a fabulous, comedy piece. It had wondrous effects, make up and costumes. The actors were great and they included-Jack, Jill, Squire Bogey, Granny, Mother Hubbard, Buttercup, Humpty dumpty, Diddle, Giant baby, and the Gruffalo! The music was great and so was so was the banter. Great sound and scenes! Also the backstage people were great.
