Jack and the Beanstalk was our 75th Anniversary show performed during half-term in February 2007. Written by panto stalwart Stephen Clark and produced by Len Lane with musical direction by Jaci Brickley-Clark. With not a spare seat in the house, the audience was thrilled with just over two hours of fun, music and laughter. Jack, played by Aimee Mogford and his less than bright brother Simple Simon played by Stephen Clark made their way up the magic beanstalk to seek fame and fortune. However, a nasty surprise awaited them in ‘Cloudland!’ It was a traditional panto filled with plenty of ‘fee fie foe FUN!’
It was the aim of the company to make this production a memorable one, as several of the cast and chorus made their television debut by featuring on BBC Wales Today and also on BBC Radio Wales. It also celebrated its 75th Anniversary in style by holding a ball at the Lamb and Flag Hotel for present and past members.
However, it was with great sadness that APC learnt of the death of our President, Councillor Gilbert Fury after a short illness.
