How To: Jack and the Beanstalk Set

There’s lots of different versions of every panto and many amateur groups still make their own set. It can often be difficult to find inspiration for how to stage your productions and what your set might look like.

Here’s an example of the get-in from Northern Island’s biggest panto to give a bit of that magic inspiration. Of course, for Jack and the Beanstalk, you usually have the beanstalk to work out and how you will stage the giant if he appears on stage (my Jack and the Beanstalk panto is written so that you can have the giant as just a voice offstage if needed). Then there’s cloud land, Jack’s village and the giant’s castle. A fair few locations!
