The childhood classic you have come to love; a tale of finding love where you least expect it, about seeing with your heart, complete with a needy witch, some animated furniture and a poodle. Our holiday panto is back – oh yes, it is! – and it’s fun for your whole family. When her mother trespasses and takes a rose from the Beast’s garden, Rose, a.k.a. Beauty, is forced to go live in the castle with the Beast, who hopes that she will be the one to break the curse laid upon him by the clingy, magic-slinging Malabelle. Will Beauty come to love him, despite his ugliness? Will they have a happily ever after? Anything is possible, but they must make their way through beloved panto tropes, musical numbers and some cheesey jokes first, but that’s all part of the charm of panto! We think they’ll make it. After all, what is it they say? Love will find a way! Oh yes, it will!
