Jack and the Beanstalk


EastEnders favourite Steve McFadden will be appearing in pantomime in St Albans this winter.

One of Walford’s infamous Mitchell brothers will star in the Alban Arena’s 2014 panto, Jack and the Beanstalk.

McFadden, best known for playing Albert Square hardman Phil Mitchell, will join the cast in the role of evil baddy Fleshcreep.

A statement on the Alban Arena’s website said: “Steve has become something of a household name over the years, and we’re glad to have him join our fantastic cast.”

The panto will also star St Albans panto regular and Morecambe actor Bob Golding as Dame Trott and Jemma Carlisle.

The giant of a pantomime will run from Friday, December 5 to January 4, 2015, with tickets already on sale.

The venue’s website added: “Tickets are already selling extremely well this year, so get online, or on the phone, and get yours soon to avoid disappointment. It’s going to be another incredible panto.”
