Ooh la la!  The stage is set for magic, mayhem and brilliantly beastly fun as this famous fairy tale is brought to life.

When the beautiful Belle bumps into the handsome Prince Valentin – with a little help from Cupid of course - love is definitely in the air. That is until the evil sorceress casts her wicked spell and everything suddenly gets hairy…really hairy.

Transported to a cursed castle and held captive by a hideous beast, can Belle see beyond the monster and fall in love before the last petal falls from the enchanted rose? 

With love and laughter, music and mayhem, all the elements you’d expect from a classic pantomime come together to make this spellbinding tale a Christmas treat for all the family...C’est magnifique!



Relaxed Performances

A relaxed performance is suitable for people with aspergers, autism or learning difficulties.  It is an opportunity for families to attend together  without worrying about how any behaviours may affect other audience members,. It is often the case that those attending need more space, for noise to be reduced and to leave the auditorium at any time.  

A relaxed performance takes place at 6pm on Tuesday 21 December.   Tickets can be booked online however if require a ticket for an essential carer/PA then please ring Ticket Office on 01202 280000.  One of our team can help you find the best seat  for you.  Your essential carer/PA ticket is not charged for.  

Some of the changes we will make for a relaxed performance include:

  • We make slight changes to the sound, lowering the volume and reducing any loud effects.
  • We slow down any flashing/strobe lighting effects.
  • The lights will always be on at a low level in the auditorium.
  • For anyone who needs to leave the show, we have a small, quiet chill-out area just outside the auditorium. You can return to the show when you are ready. It is fine if you need to leave and return several times.
  • We do not sell every seat so you can move around freely.

Most importantly we ask everyone to be tolerant and accepting of the fact that some people may express enjoyment of the show in different ways; the attitude to noise, singing along to the show, and movement is relaxed, we ask anyone in our audience to be supportive of this.
