A large corporation is polluting the skies above with their industrialised nation, while the agricultural land below is suffering under the strain.  Our Panto Dame is figuring out how to use the new-fangled machines that Jack keeps inventing and Milky White is looking to become an influencer on MooTube.


Combining traditional pantomime with a steampunk twist, audiences are introduced to Jack, a young progressive torn between two worlds - the traditional farming community he lives in with Dame Trott, his mother, and the industrial world above he has heard so much about - with its amazing contraptions, impossible inventions and giant wealth!


In true SAVVY-style, this original pantomime will involve an inclusive community cast from across our diverse membership, including young people, adults with a learning disability, people with experience of homelessness and everyone in-between.

An update on the show ...

We are delighted to let you know that Jack & the Beanstalk will now be performed at the Aschcroft Theatre, Fairfield Halls on Sunday 18th July 2021.

This venue will allow us to accommodate a larger, socially distanced audience and in addition to the Steampunk panto, your ticket now includes a special pre-show film premiere! 

Throughout the pandemic, working both in the SAVVY studio and over Zoom, our amazing members from 3-D, Action Replay, Take-2 and our YounGrrr Company, have created a documentary-style film.


The film premiere starts at 2.30pm and lasts for approximately an hour.  There will be a short interval.  

The panto starts at 4pm and lasts for approximately 90 minutes.  

Your ticket is valid for both events, however if you wish to just come for the 4pm panto you are welcome to join us then.
