Jermin Productions are delighted to climb the countdown to Christmas as we prepare to present our fifth Pantomime Season in South Wales’ Pantomime Land. We are HUGELY excited to present our biggest Pantomime to date in the form of Jack and the Beanstalk which will be visiting 4 wonderful Theatre Venues this December and January!
Leading this magical beanstalk tale will be our Pantomime hero Jack Trott played by the brilliantly talented Jay Worley, who can regularly be seen playing another “Jac” character on our screen on S4C’s Rownd a Rownd. Charismatic Jay from Cardiff is no stranger to the stage, and is really looking forward to returning to his singing roots having successfully proved his talent from appearing on many rounds of Britain’s Got Talent and reaching the judges house stages on ITV’s X Factor.
Making up the remaining Trott family from the Panto-pridd Village where this enchanting story is set will be returning Pantomime veteran Adam Byard (whose credits include E4’s ShelfStackers, Hunky Dory, BBC’s Doctors) as Jack’s brother J J (“say Way Hey J J!!”) J J a firm favourite with children and adults alike from his previous Panto appearances will be sure to cause chaos and mishaps for his mum Dame Cookie Trott who will be played by the hysterical and fabulous Anthony Argyle.
Waving her magical wand and lustrous vocal chords across this Pantomime season will be Laura Phillips as Fairy Green Bean, whose credits include Lady of the Lake in Spamalot and we will have sparkle and glamour from the delightful Leila Hughes from S4C’s Gwaith Cartref and Pobol Y Cwm as the perfectly pretty Panto Princess Jill.
And no Pantomime would be complete without a Villain that we all love to hate, superbly executed by Liam Dascombe as the frightful Fleshcreep!

Productions presents the story of Jack and the Beanstalk:
“Jack is a poor boy who lives with his mother, Dame Trott and their cow. One day they became so poor that Jack’s mother told him he must sell the cow at market to buy some food for the family. On his voyage to the market Jack meets a stranger who gives him five magic beans in exchange for his family’s cow. Jack accepts and races home to tell his mother who is furious that he sold their cow for a handful of silly beans. With great force she throws the beans out of the window and sends Jack to bed with no supper. Overnight the small magical beans transform and grow into a GIGANTIC beanstalk which casts a shadow over the entire village. Amazed by this mysterious beanstalk Jack decides to climb higher and higher through the clouds where he finds an enormous castle which is home to the largest GIANT!
Under the protection and orders of the magical fairy, Jack enters the castle and steals gold pieces, a goose that can lay golden eggs and a magical harp. As Jack races to make an exit out of the Castle, the harp plays its musical strings and shouts that it is being stolen which awakes the Giant from a deep sleep. The Giant leaps from his chair and chases Jack back down the beanstalk.
Can Jack be quick enough to reach the home and escape the Giant’s grasp? Will the Fairy send her strong powers to help Jack and his mother chop down the beanstalk before the Giant can reach the ground? We’d love to see the Giant fall from the clouds so that the Trott family can live happily ever after with their new found fortune!”
