Unleash the beast and the magic of pantomime with this years sparkling musical fairy tale.

The most enchanting pantomime of all time, Beauty & The Beast, comes to York with a sparkling fairy tale production for all the family. With an award-winning script by Jon Monie (Great British Pantomime Awards, 2019), a cast of larger than life characters, side-splitting comedy, sumptuous costumes, fabulous scenery, and a thrilling transformation scene.

Join Belle, The Beast, Fairy Bon Bon, the exuberant Polly La Plonk and her cheeky chappy son Louis La Plonk as they are transported to a cursed castle, under the spell of an evil enchantress. Can the wicked Hugo be defeated, can Belle see beyond the Beast and fall in love with her captor, will the Beast’s heart be melted by Belle’s beauty?

BAFTA award winning actress Dani Harmer (Tracy Beaker, Strictly Come Dancing) stars as Fairy Bon Bon. Joining Dani will be award-winning comedian Phil Reid as Louis La Plonk, with dame extraordinaire and musical theatre star Leon Craig (Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, Disney’s Aladdin) as his larger than life mum, Polly la Plonk. Musical theatre star Phil Atkinson (The Bodyguard, Joseph & his Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, The Little Shop of Horrors) stars as the dastardly Hugo Pompidou, with David Alcock (The Mousetrap, BBC’s SAS Rogue Heroes) as Clement.

Casting for Belle and the Beast will be announced shortly.
