The cast of Norwich Theatre Royal's pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk have taken their final curtain call. As the run comes to an end we look back at some of the highlights.
It's been a busy few weeks at Norwich Theatre Royal, with 56 performances of Jack and the Beanstalk and more than 61,000 people attending.
The cast performed the last couple of shows this weekend, and they're looking forward to a few days off – they're bound to be feeling a little hoarse by now!
Even with so many performances, the cast have been out and about around Norwich and Norfolk. Did you spot them at any of these events?
