The Groundlings Theatre Pantomime is back, and this year it's the family classic Beauty and the Beast.

A selfish Prince is cursed by an enchantress and only true love can save him.

Intelligent and thoughtful Belle sacrifices herself for her father who, after a string of bad luck, leaves his family destitute and gets caught by the monstrous Beast whilst attempting to pick a rose for his favourite daughter. Stuck in a strange place, Belle comes to find a magical new world and, aided by the castle Dame, starts to see the Beast in a different light.

Can true love flourish when least expected and will Belle save the Beast on time? Prepare to laugh, cry, shimmy and shake at this fresh adaptation of a heart-warming tale by the creative team at The Groundlings Theatre Trust.

This tale of love and redemption - inspired by the famed French fairy tale La Belle et la Bête - will bring a smile to all the family with memorable characters, hilarious jokes and groovy musical numbers that you'll be humming long after you leave.

This Christmas, join the Groundlings Theatre for a spellbinding adventure and a holiday season you will never forget…

Groundlings Theatre is operated by The Groundlings Theatre Trust, a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO). Registered Charity Number: 1186929.
