The Only an Excuse star will play the role of the King with Two Doors Down favourite Elaine C Smith and comedy veteran Johnny Mac stepping into the roles of Dame Trot and Jack’s brother respectively.
Jonathan Watson is no stranger to the stage having starred in numerous productions over the years, including Cinderella at the King’s in 2005, and The National Theatre of Scotland's production of Yer Granny; and Birmingham Rep’s production of Douglas Maxwell’s The Whip Hand - seen at last year’s Edinburgh Festival.
Jonathan said: “I’m delighted to be returning to the King’s panto and thrilled to be joining the Queen of Scottish panto (and one of my favourite neighbours from Two Doors Down) Elaine and working with Johnny for the first time. They’re a great pair.
“It’s a real badge of honour to play the King’s given its panto history. Panto is very special, it’s hard work but the payoff you get performing in front of a live audience over the Christmas period is truly magical.”
The King’s Theatre pantomime will be produced by Qdos Entertainment, the world’s biggest pantomime producer, for the third year.
Packed with all of the traditional ingredients King’s Theatre audiences have come to expect Jack and the Beanstalk will be bursting with stunning costumes, special effects and plenty of boos and hisses.
