Extra shows of the Aberdeen Christmas show, Jack and the Magic Beans, have had to be added to the three week run at the city’s Lemon Tree Studio to meet the huge demand for tickets.
With nearly a week to go before the show opens on Monday (Dec 5), Aberdeen Performing Arts (APA) and Scottish Youth Theatre have added a 4.30pm performance from Monday to Thursday, December 19 to 22 to the twice daily shows at mid-morning and early afternoon.
The family-orientated show, for children under seven years old, stars local actress Michelle Bruce, alongside young Aberdonian Brad Morrison and Scott Miller, who plays the role of Jack.
"The demand for Jack and the Magic Beans tickets has been amazing,” said delighted APA head of programming Ben Torrie.
“We are very pleased to add extra shows in the run-up to Christmas so that we do not disappoint families keen to see one of the most interactive and fun festive shows in the North-east.
“Many of those booking for this year’s show will have seen our last Lemon Tree Christmas showstopper – The Puddock and the Princess – which was enjoyed by a lot of families with very young show-goers.
"This year's production is the first co-production between APA and Scottish Youth Theatre and it is hugely gratifying to have so much support from the public."
