Our annual pantomime is the biggest event of the year at Theatre Royal Wakefield. 2019’s production of Jack and the Beanstalk played to 31,500 audience members. The chorus, made up of local young people, plays a crucial role in making the show spectacular. The schedule is tough and requires commitment and discipline, but it is also a brilliant opportunity to perform alongside and work with a professional cast and crew.
