New Customs House Panto is Set to be a big Success
Jack and the Beanstalk
South Shields Customs House
Tuesday 29th November 2016 to Saturday 7th January 2017
Fee Fi Fo Fum – I smell the success of another panto!
Jack in the Beanstalk will be next year’s pantomime at The Customs House – and it already looks like it will be a big hit.
Almost 3,000 pantomime fans have already snapped up tickets to see the show with almost half of all seats for Christmas Eve 2016 taken up.

Customs House Executive Director Ray Spencer MBE, who writes, directs and stars in the show, said: “We can't wait to bring Jack and the Beanstalk to life at The Customs House. It's not the first time we've done Jack so we’re excited to bring it back bigger and better than ever.
Jack and the Beanstalk is a traditional pantomime and it’s clear to see people are eager to see what we’ll bring to this production – it's bound to continue to grow in its success. We are known as the little panto with the big heart but next year we’ll be the little panto with the big Beanstalk!”
This year’s festive show, Alice in Wonderland, has already sold more than 24,000 tickets with more than a week left in the run.
Alice, which runs until January 9, was chosen to coincide with The Custom House building’s 150th anniversary and the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s much-loved book.
Ray added: “Alice has been such a success with both the critics and our audiences, we’re so pleased everyone has loved watching it as much as we’ve loved our time in Wonderland. There are some tickets still available so make sure you get your tickets now and you’re not too late!”
Jack and the Beanstalk, sponsored by Hays Travel, is on from Tuesday 29th November 2016 to Saturday 7th January 2017. Tickets start from £9.75 and are available from the box office on 0191 454 1234 or by visiting www.customshouse.co.uk.
