Emmerdale star and reigning King of the Jungle, Danny Miller, will star in the Alhambra Theatre’s pantomime in the title role of Jack. He’ll be joined by RuPaul’s Drag Race UK runner-up and musical theatre performer Divina De Campo as The Spirit of the Beans in Jack and the Beanstalk at the Alhambra Theatre.
To be honest, the star of the Bradford panto always has and always will be Billy Pearce, who’ll be playing Farmer Billy. He pretty much is panto here in Bradford, though it’s great to see he’ll have a decent back-up cast to bounce off.
Divina De Campo’s a certain talent, but it’s the atmosphere they create in a theatre that’ll be super interesting to watch. I last saw them in Chicago and they brought the house down during the bows, so it’s clear audiences absolutely love them!
I don’t watch Emmerdale, but Danny Miller’s role as Aaron Dingle won him three British Soap Awards for Best Actor and he’s well-known for his charm and charisma so he’s bound to be a panto hit!
Talking about his casting in Jack and the Beanstalk Danny Miller said:
“I have loved the story of Jack and the Beanstalk since I was a kid so I’m really excited to bring it to life on the stage. To get the chance alongside Billy and Divina will be bags of fun!”
Adam Renton General Manager Bradford Theatres commented:
“I’m absolutely delighted with the addition of Danny and Divina to our cast for this year’s pantomime. I’m sure that audiences of all ages will thoroughly enjoy another outstanding festive show in Bradford. Along with Billy Pearce at the helm, Danny and Divina will ensure that Jack and the Beanstalk at the Alhambra Theatre is bigger and better than ever before, packed with festive magic, spectacular effects and lots of laughter.”
Doomed to sell his trusty cow, Jack sets out on a quest to climb a beanstalk of gigantic proportions to cloudland in the spectacular family pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk.
Jack and the Beanstalk is produced by the world’s biggest pantomime producer, Crossroads Pantomimes, and will feature amazing effects by theatrical special effects wizards The Twins FX.
The panto will run from Saturday 10 December 2022 – Sunday 22 January 2023 at the Alhambra Theatre. Don’t miss out on Bradford’s ultimate festive treat and book your tickets now!
