Torrent Productions brings its fourth annual holiday season production, Jack and the BeansTalk: A Merry Magical Pantomime, to the East Toronto area this month.

The show opens on Friday, Dec. 20 at 7 p.m. and is slated to run for 12 shows until Sunday, Dec. 29. Performances will take place at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 1/42 on Coxwell Avenue near Gerrard Street East.

Husband and wife team Rob Torr and Stephanie Graham of Torrent Productions think that the show will be a fun night out for families and people of all ages.

“Pantomime is an interactive, family night of fun. There’s something for everybody,” said Torr, the writer and director of the show.

Torr said that writing will include jokes for the kids, jokes for adults, and jokes that everyone will understand.

Graham said that Jack and the BeansTalk will feature familiar characters that everyone will know and remember, including Jack, his mother, and his cow, Daisy.

“But it’s a pantomime so there’s lots of changes in the world. It’s very topsy turvy,” said Graham, the choreographer of the show.

Graham said that the show features a cast of musical theatre actors from regional theatres across the country, including the Stratford Festival. Cynthia Dale from Stratford Festival and CBC’s Street Legal will make a special guest appearance as the voice of the Giant.

Graham said that the show is a great way to bring people together during the holiday season.

Tickets can be purchased for $28 for children up to 12, and for $38 for ages 12 and up at Brown Paper Tickets: www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4216259. The show is recommended for ages five and up. Limited seating will be available at the venue.
