Category: Past Shows




Cast – Theresa Brockway, Henry Douthwaite, Ben Watson, Heather Wilson, Murray Smith

Is Beauty too snooty to feast with the beast?

Psst… Yes you!… Have you heard about the Beast? They say he’s around here somewhere. They say he’s so ugly that when he looks in a mirror even his own reflection gets a shock! They say his breath pongs like a five year-old brussel sprout and that he’s so hairy, he has to comb his teeth. He’s a cheesy, sneezy, wheezy, nitty, greasy, mouldy lunch-box whiffler. And he’s headed this way…

From the company that brought you last year’s sell-out Christmas show, Peter Pan, comes a brand new adaptation of Perrault’s classic fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast. Chocked full of fantastic, original music, exquisite storytelling and join-in action, Beauty and the Beast is a sparkling family show suitable for ‘beauties’ and ‘beasts’ young and old!
