Magic beancounters

Every year, PwC puts on a panto for charity. Normally it has a monopoly on accountancy-based Christmas entertainment, but when we heard there might be some competition from Deloitte duo Marianthe Sitzoukis and Sarah McFarlane, TS decided to give the panto an early plug and obtain some exclusive info.

PwC is putting on Jack and the Beanstalk this year, the 20th panto it has done. No opportunity for beancounter jokes there then. Tara Kent, who works in training at the firm, is directing, and audit(ion)s are taking place now. Rehearsals start in September with curtain up in January.

The only thing yet to be decided is the cameo roles for senior partners. Kieran Poynter is always in Davos for these things, but we’d like to see John Whiting on stage ­ not to mention Peter Wyman, Gillian Wild and Glyn Barker. The gauntlet, you might say, has been laid down.
