London, UK – The Entertainment Providers and the team that brought the critically acclaimed "Snow White And The Seven Men" in 2021 and last year's "Sinderfella" are flying back into the West End for 2023 with a brand-new production of "Jack And His Giant Bigstalk." This hilarious adult pantomime will be performed at The Prince Of Wales, Drury Lane, London, from December 8th to December 22nd, 2023, promising to be bigger, bolder, and naughtier than ever.

Join Queen Genetalia, Jack, Jill, Fairy Courgette, Daisy The Human Cow, Dame Trott, and a whole host of pantomime characters for a night of panto fun and frolics. This year's show will bring you a delightful and risqué version of the much-loved story packed full of laughs and delicious fairy-tale campery!

The show will be led by Big Brother star Simon Gross, who will take on the role of the Evil Queen Genetalia.

This pop-powered pantomime features feel-good party anthems such as "Barbie Girl," "Electric Dreams," "It Must Be Love," "Never Going To Give You Up," "Wannabe," "Thriller," and "I Will Survive." With sensational sparkling sets and costumes, an utterly filthy laugh-a-minute script, and a whole load of audience participation, this is the perfect way to kick-start your Christmas with a bang!

Simon Gross says, "Jack And His Bigstalk takes all the ingredients of the pantomimes we grew up with and know and love but takes the double entendre to the next level! All the bits that were knowingly laughed at by your Dad are exposed in all their glory in a fairy tale romp. This year we're really looking forward to pushing the boundaries to bring you the most memorable and hilarious night out in the heart of the West End."

"Sinderfella" is brought to the stage by The Entertainment Providers, who produced London's original adult-only pantomime back in 2011. The critical acclaim for the 2022 show "Sinderfella" speaks for itself:

"Loved it! Panto at its best - full of fun frivolity and raunchiness." - Daily Star

"You need to see it to believe it... This is pure madness... very funny and highly entertaining." - West End Extra

"Totally degenerate, twisted, camp hilarity from beginning to end. Why do we have to wait a year to see the next one!" - The Audience Club

Ginny Lazzoni, General Manager at the Prince of Wales, says, "We are super excited for this opportunity to house this gorgeous show, which is also perfectly in line with our new vision of the pub. It's a show not to miss!"

Simon has been in the world of entertainment and theatre for 35 years and trained at Guildford School of Acting. He has had a versatile career as an actor, presenter, producer, and entertainer. From humble beginnings as a Butlins redcoat, Simon has graced West End stages and delighted panto audiences. Some of Simon's favorite roles to date are Edna in Hairspray, Benny in the West End production of Singalong ABBA, and the Emcee in the European Tour of The Best Of Broadway. His TV credits also include Noel's House Party (1998), What the Butler Saw (2004), and Hell's 2 Kitchen (2005).
