The panto has been written by the group’s writing team Rob Fearn and Leo Appleton.

Getting the giant on stage always poses a problem but with clever use of technology the giant will be projected on stage.

Leo Appleton said: “It’s been a bit tricky but thankfully we have a great technical person in the guise of Simon Donnelly who has seen this as a personal challenge to create this bit of stage magic.”
