UKTW - 25 years online
CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April and May is actually postponed or cancelled. Pantomimes are possible but a few venues and shows may not return and larger venues and tours are unlikely to re-appear before 2021.

Production details

A quirky, comic re-telling of the classic fairy story through the eyes of the mischievous Fairy Goody. Having condemned the beautiful princess to an enchanted sleep in a fit of anger, she then has to seek out a suitably brave and handsome prince to break the spell. But the dashing prince doesn't match up to expectations and Beauty's happy ever after doesn't quite go to plan. An enchanted forest, fantastical creatures and a mother-in-law who turns out to be an ogre combine to create an entertaining story that will be enjoyed by children and adults alike. Expect a touch of Roald Dahl in this acclaimed version by Rufus Norris with plenty of original music. Directed by Bill Buckhurst, with design by Simon Kenny, lighting by Jack Knowles and music by Tarek Merchant.
