Dame Judi Dench has agreed to play the part of the Giantess in Giggleswick School’s production of Into the Woods at the beginning of December.

A patron of Giggleswick’s Richard Whiteley Theatre, Dame Judi has appeared in several productions of this Sondheim musical, including those on Broadway and most recently at the open air theatre in Regent’s Park.

Her involvement in the School’s show began when she was approached by a pupil.
