Prince Handsome upsets a witch and is turned into The Beast, a spell only to be undone by true love. Belle is trapped in the Beast's castle after her father makes a deal to escape and eventually falls for "the inner man" and releases the Beast from his spell. Set in the French village of Populaire Sur La Mare, a host of creative roles, colourful scenery and a fast-paced story bring this pantomime tale right up to date with plenty of shenanigans, more than a trifle of tomfoolery and an amuse-bouche of comedy capers. Join the big-hearted Dame Cheri Trifle who is layered with loveliness, including her a la mode costumes! Gaston swaggers with attitude, but flounces with fear when he meets the witch Mauvaise. A crackpot, inventive professor brings chaos and calamities while the village's handyman, Philippe Philoppe, adds a new level of raucous, riotous, revelry to the Harlequin stage! Beauty and the Beast champions one of today's most relevant pantomime stories; will Belle see beyond the Beast's imposing façade and discover love is more than skin deep?
