becomes the prisoner of a monstrous Beast in return for her father’s freedom, but can she tame the Beast and teach him to love, and be loved in return?
A baddie wanting boos, goodies with some gags, a heroine in hot water … but what has happened to the handsome Prince? A spectacular adventure as Dame Derriere and son, Potty Pierre, cause chaos at the chateau.
‘The action is fast-paced enough to hold the attention of even the youngest members of the audience, but not so much that the story become difficult to follow’.
‘The show is clever, funny and has just about the right mix of slapstick one-liners, jokes and gags, audience participation’.
‘The rhyming couplets are rather literate, and very witty, and there is a freshness about the dialogue that steers it clear of the wrong sort of panto cliché’.
‘The script skips along at a joyous pace and is full of silly cracker jokes which are both groan-worthy and excellent fun.’
‘Chris Jordan has embroidered this ancient story with bright ideas, a classy script and brisk direction.’
