A tale as old as pantomime! The most enchanting fairy story of all is given an exciting pantomime treatment by award winning U.K. playwright Philip Meeks! When Fairy Bon-Bon and the Demon Diablo clash, selfish Prince Pierre is transformed into a terrible Beast. To break the curse Pierre must fall in love before the last petal on a magical rose falls. But who could ever love such a monster? Enter feisty Belle Baguette from the nearby village. When she stands up to the Beast their affection for each other grows but will the Beast be able to melt Belle’s heart before it’s too late? A zany cast of characters become part of the story with much hilarity, sharp witted humour and help from the audience. With music straight out of today’s pop charts, song sheets and Broadway show-stoppers, this telling of Beauty and The Beast has laughter and music in spades — great entertainment for all ages!
