New take on Jack and the Beanstalk entertains audiences.

Pantomime traditions have returned to Dunkeswell after eight years with Jack and his Amazing Multicoloured Beanstalk.

The local cast played to full houses and brought the production, written by Geoff Bamber, to life.

Rainy Shaw took on the heroic role of Jack while Paul Lapping played the evil Baron supported by his henchmen - Jenny and Ellie Strahan.

The strange old lady, played by Rene Pym, and her little friend Raymond had audiences in fits of laughter.

Unfortunately, the princess, Julia Evans, was unwell and director Barry Simmonds had to step into the part at the last minute, which meant there was an hilarious dame on stage.

An enjoyable time was had by audiences and the cast alike so pantomime may be returning to the village once again in the future.
