What we thought: On the first winter storm of the season, my family and I braved the elements to see Red Castle Theatre's Jacques and the Bean Stock Market. The show was amazing because of the interactive elements, music and comedy. Our children were thrilled to be in the dance routine which was super funny and cleaver. My favourite characters were Ronald Bump (awesome take on Donald Trump) and the sassy cat! All actors involved were very witty and the plot was cleaver. Affordable show to take the family to, in the fun neighbourhood of Leslieville (just west of the beaches).
Pantomime Definition: A theatrical entertainment, that involves music, topical jokes, and slapstick comedy and is based on a fairy tale or nursery story, usually produced around Christmas.
RED SANDCASTLE THEATRE’s
Jacques and the Bean Stock Market
It’s panto time again (oh yes it is!) and the Red Sandcastle Theatre’s Panto Players are presenting their 5th annual, magical, traditional family pantomime for the festive season.
Jacques and the Bean Stock Market is full of fun and sparkle, with more than a sprinkling of pantomime magic.
Jacques and his mom the Widow Twankey live in a quaint little Leslieville cottage, with their ever-reliable cow, Buttons. It’s a nice life until the milk goes off.
Selling their cow for magic beans to the Cheshire Cat, (A cat who has found employment with the rude and greedy corporate giant, Ronald Bump), turns Jacques world upside down and makes everything rather unpleasant as shiny new condos seem to grow around them over night.
But can Jacques profit from this Bean Stock Market?
If Twankey “looks out behind her” can she keep her home?
Now a Leslieville tradition this year’s Jacques and the Bean Stock Market is a fun-filled family pantomime brought to you by the creative team of Jane Shields and Rosemary Doyle who brought you The Shoemaker and the Pantomimes, Alice in Blunderland, Sleepy Beauty, and Dick Whit for Mayor. Jackie English will be bringing her directing talents, and of course returning with her crowd favourite “Cheshire Cat” as always, the Cat is BACK!
Filled with catchy songs, silly jokes, dastardly villains, delightful dancing and a huge dose of slapstick, the Red Sandcastle Theatre once again serves up a sparkling festive treat!
Starring:Taran Beaty, Robert Keller, Michael Posthumus, Matthew Donovan, Victor Pokinko,
Kristen Foote, Rosemary Doyle and Jackie English as the Cat!
