Stagestruck presented their annual panto in the Cardenal Beluga theatre San Fulgencio on the 29th, 30th November and 1st December to three very enthusiastic audiences.

This year it was Jack and the Beanstalk with an ‘all talking all singing beanstalk’ the like of which has never before been seen. The magnificent stage set built by Gary Rearden and script written, directed and choreographed by talented local resident Stella Rearden. It tells the story of the Trott family’s descent into rent arrears and poverty.

The Dame Titiana Trott, and what a dame with bits in places most don’t even have places, under pressure from the local fuzz, reminiscent of the Keystone cops, decides to sell Matilda the cow. Many a cow have I milked but what this one would give I know not.

The decision to sell the cow lands Jack in trouble when he is swindled into accepting a bag of worthless beans. Jack, dame and Simple Simon, funky or what, set off in hot pursuit of Matilda. They know they are on the right track when they see ‘cowpoo’ that tastes very like nutella. Hmm, lovely!!

Along the way they meet grotesque tree spirits, what were those things, and all singing all dancing Fairy liquide. The giant Blunderbore and his henchman Rancid are rendered helpless with the help of a magic sword. Matilda is saved and normality restored

Jack’s luck changes when he tells a young girl you really are gorgeous and pulls a Princess. Must try that line sometime. They fall in love, marry and live happily ever after.

The show was performed by a cast of 26 and backstage crew of 8 of which every single one thoroughly deserves praise. Songs poignant and popular were superb and the choreography eye catching.

Special mention must be made of the decision to perform a matinee on Sunday to encourage theatre going by the kids. Would it work, well work it did. Countless of the little blighters kept up an incessant barrage nearly taking over the show at one point. Wonderful.

The 3 nights raised a total of 2,700 euros and the Stagestruck company wish to extend the warmest gratitude to our following for their generosity. Currently over 15,000 euros in 2 years. Every cent raised goes to charity as their shows are all funded by their murder mystery evenings. Come and see one sometime.

The company look forward to entertaining you all again in the near future and in the mean time wish you all a merry Christmas and happy new year.
