‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and British panto at Centerstage

Centerstage will bring a bit of director Alan Bryce’s heritage and holiday traditions.

For its holiday English panto this year, Centerstage will present “Jack and the Beanstalk” through Dec. 20. British panto is now a wildly popular form of theater and incorporates song, dance, buffoonery, slapstick, cross-dressing, in-jokes, audience participation and mild sexual innuendo.

The show itself feature a giant created by the Zambini Brothers, who are Vashon Island puppeteer artists. Single tickets for all 15 performances are on sale now and available at (253) 661-1444 and www.centerstagetheatre.com or in person at the Knutzen Family Theatre box office.
