“Come and join us for the enchanting family pantomime.

“When an arrogant Prince is cursed to live as a beast, his only hope of salvation is to find love before the last petal falls from a magic rose. When pretty village girl Beauty comes into his life, is this the chance he has been waiting for?

“Make memories this Christmas with this fun-filled, family friendly fairy tale which has all the ingredients for a truly memorable pantomime – hilarious slapstick, plenty of audience interaction and marvellous musical numbers that you will be singing for days afterwards.

“Beauty and the Beast will be sure to make you laugh, cry and fall in love with a host of hilarious and hairy characters so book your tickets now and discover if Beauty can see beyond appearances and learn to love a beast!

“We are thrilled to announce that Hastings's favourites the fabulous Tim McArthur and the hilarious legend that is Ben Watson are back for what will be a sensational pantomime season.”
