Enjoy an enchanting Easter at St Helens Theatre Royal
The lavish fairytale production of Beauty and the Beast, from Regal Entertainments, is packed with stunning and colourful costumes, laugh out loud comedy and a fantastic soundtrack of songs you can dance and sing along to.
Belle is a beautiful young woman who falls in love with the most unexpected of princes, one who has been cursed to live as a hideous beast. Will the Beast learn how to love and be loved in return – and will the spell be broken in time for a happily ever after?
The cast includes Lauren McCrory as Belle, Benjamin Keith as the Beast, Auguste Voulton as Gaston, Lewis Devine as French Frank, Abigail Middleton as Madam Botox, Marie Lovelady as Fairy Rose and Richard Aucott as Potty Polly.
The show is written by Liam Mellor and directed by Chantelle Nolan. Nazene Langfield is choreographer and Callum Clarke is music supervisor.
Theatre Manager and the show’s director Chantelle Nolan said:
“An intelligent and beautiful heroine, a flawed hero, and an arrogant suitor, all wrapped up in a tale that values the power of love and kindness – who could ask for more this Easter?
“Beauty and the Beast is an enchanting show full of excitement, laughter and spectacle, and I know our St Helens audiences are going to absolutely love it.”
Regal Entertainments Ltd have also been shortlisted in four categories at the prestigious National Panto Awards 2023 for their productions of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, which entertained Epstein Theatre audiences last Christmas, and Cinderella which dazzled festive theatregoers at St Helens Theatre Royal.
Beauty and the Beast runs at St Helens Theatre Royal from Wednesday 5 to Sunday 16 April 2023.
Tickets are on sale now from £16.
