They may only be a small am-dram group – but Sparkle Productions are all prepared for a giant of a show when they stage their fourth annual panto, starting next week.

The Preston Playhouse Theatre is the venue for Jack and the Beanstalk, which runs from January 22-24.

The cast from the Chorley-based group have been busy rehearsing for the show, which follows their productions of Aladdin last year; Cinderella in 2013 and Robin Hood in 2012.

The panto starts at 7.15pm each night.

You can buy tickets at www.wegottickets.com, at the Preston tourist information centre, the Guild Hall, or over the phone on 01772 253731.

All tickets are £9 each, or £34 for a family
