Two extra shows have been added to Sheringham Little Theatre’s panto season due to strong demand.

Performances of the panto Jack and the Beanstalk will take place at 10am on Tuesday, December 28 and Thursday, December 30 in addition to the 1pm and 5pm performances.

The move comes amid high demand to see the live Jack and Beanstalk panto which runs from December 21 to 31.

Theatre director Debbie Thompson said: “It is wonderful that so many people want to see our panto. Many shows are sold out so we have squeezed in a couple more to ensure families wanting to see Jack are not disappointed. After all pantos are all about happy endings.”
