Panto is heading to Dubai just in time for Christmas! Families can attend Jack and the Beanstalk at InterContinental Dubai Festival City in December.

There are various performances scheduled between Wednesday December 16 and Sunday December 27, excluding Christmas Day as even fairy tale characters need a festive break!

Jack and The Beanstalk is a classic pantomime starring Jack, Daisy the Cow and Dame Trott (Jack’s Mum) trying to stay solvent.

The hotel's ballroom is being transformed into a theatre where kids can see Jack take on the giant... “Fee Fi Fo Fum – I smell the blood of an Englishman”!

Tickets start from Dhs125 and are being sold in bubbles of three, four and five people.

Expect lots of laughs, magic, singing and spectacular scenery as the story unfolds when Dame Trott sends Jack to market to sell the family’s one prized possession - Daisy the Cow - and he comes home with nothing but a handful of beans, which grow into an enormous beanstalk.

All COVID-19 safety measures will be in place including temperature checks, masks and socially-distanced seating.

From Dhs125. Various performances from Wed Dec 16 to Sun Dec 27 (excluding Fri Dec 25). InterContinental Dubai Festival City, Dubai,
