Based on the much-loved fairy tale of Jack and The Beanstalk combined with the poems of Rudyard Kipling, Bollywood Jack promises to be a unique pantomime experience for all the family, as East meets West with glittering costumes, a side-splitting dame and songs that will have everyone dancing in the aisles.
“It really is an honour to be taking playing a role in Bollywood Jack alongside such a superb professional cast and I want to thank Tara Arts for putting so much faith in me. This exceptional theatre company is a jewel in Wandsworth’s cultural crown and there is nowhere else like it in London.” said the mayor.
“I believe I’ll be the first Mayor of Wandsworth to walk the boards while on official mayoral duty. If the performances are half as fun as the reversals, we’ll all be in for great night.”
Hot on the heels of sell-out smash hit successes Bollywood Cinderella and Dick Whittington Goes Bollywood, Bollywood Jack is another Christmas treat with their traditional Bollywood spin, which audiences can enjoy in Tara’s brand-new theatre in Garratt Lane, Earlsfield.
