Our Heywood team enjoyed the Christmas Pantomime!

16th January, 2020

It's become a tradition at Capstone North to visit the panto at Christmas. This year, 80 of over Heywood children and carers came together and attended the famous Oldham Coliseum. This theatre is renowned for pantomime and has been putting the extra sparkle into the festive season for generations, with all the ingredients for fantastic family fun: hit songs, silliness, a sprinkling of fairy dust and a generous helping of "It's Behind You!" This year's panto was Jack and the Beanstalk - a true hit! The well-known story is about a boy called Jack that sells his cow for magic beans, much to the dismay of his mother. But when the beans grow into a gigantic beanstalk, Jacket sets off on an adventure in the magical land about the clouds. Featuring a magic fairy, a hippy cow and of course, a giant, Jacket and the beanstalk is a traditional family pantomime with a modern twist - the perfect Christmas treat for children and the 'not-go-grown-up' grown-ups.
 

All the carers, staff and children loved the show. E, one of our young people who attended, was so impressed to see other young people performing on the stage, that she now wants to join a drama club and get into acting, which is so wonderful to hear!

Pantomime is great fun and a favourite with our carers in the North! We can't wait for next year's performance of Cinderella already!
