The Diana Freedman School of Dance and Performing Arts presents a tale as old as pantomime in this spellbinding Christmas spectacular!
Don’t miss Beauty and the Beast; the timeless tale of laughter, magic and true love!
Morning performance at 11am
Evening performance at 5pm
The handsome vain Prince Claude lives in a magnificent palace until he is cursed by the wicked Enchantress, transforming him into a monstrous beast. Meanwhile, beautiful Belle lives in her French village with her hapless father, dreaming of adventure with her best pal Brie.
Will the Prince break the curse? Could anyone possibly love a Beast?
Find out in this pantomime spin on a classic tale, featuring a hilariously cheeky, pun-filled script, a colourful cast of characters and magnificent musical numbers, all combined with special effects, sparkling costumes, sensational scenery and singing and dancing from local talented Performing Arts Studio, The Diana Freedman’s School of Dance and Performing Arts.
This is the family pantomime not to be missed!
This year’s magical extravaganza is brought to you by the team behind 2018’s ‘Aladdin’, and 2019’s hit, ‘Cinderella’, and once again we promise you a pantomime full of fun and frolics for the whole family!
