Christmas Carousels and Beanstalk

Nothing says Christmas quite like a pantomime so when the Carousel Theatre Company rolled up with their version of Jack and The Beanstalk, everyone joined in to boo the giant, cheer on Jack, count the magic beans and clap for Daisy the cow.

Carousel, based in Chiswick, writes specially adapted versions of shows to take to residential care homes and day centres around the country. Professional actors play all the parts.

We are all children at heart and the show evoked many memories for our residents. They laughed, cheered, jeered, clapped and toe tapped throughout the performance. And yes, they all shouted ‘Oh not it isn’t, oh yes it is’ at the appropriate moment.

“It was thoroughly enjoyable from beginning to end. Just like the pantomimes I remember from years ago with my family and just as much fun,” said one appreciative audience member.
