PADSTOW'S Kernow Players will be staging their first ever panto production at the Little Theatre tonight until March 1.

Jack and the Beanstalk is produced by Tania Grubb and directed by Judith Alcock and tells the classic story of a hapless young lad Jack who sells his mum's prize cow for a handful of beans believing them to be magic.

The villagers, the king and the princess are being terrorised by an evil witch, and a giant of immense appetite who will eat anything and everything if he doesn't get his gold.

Overnight the beanstalk magically grows and aided and abetted by Dame Trott, Dozy Den, and the Royal household; Jack climbs the beanstalk and the adventure begins.

The production is full of lively song and dance and, with great costumes and sound effects, promises to be a great family show.

Performances start tonight at 7.30pm and continue every Wednesday,Thursday, Friday and Saturday until March 1.

Tickets are available from 'W' Lanadwell Street, Padstow Tel: 01841 532292, £7 for adults; £3 children.
