Beauty and The Beast

A spectacular retelling of the original, much-loved fairytale

Adapted and directed by Theresa Heskins

This Christmas, discover the original Beauty and The Beast, and fall in love with a true classic!

Our exceptional creative team are back together once again to create a show full of festive joy. Expect enchanting storytelling, music, humour and plenty of magical moments as we bring this well-known tale to life in our spectacular trademark style.

When she is given a beautiful flower from the garden of a stranger, her family unwittingly doom Bella to imprisonment in a castle with a Beast. Bella believes she is there to clean, her sisters believe she’s about to be eaten. When she meets the Beast, what will happen…?

A beloved fable that has been inspiring young and old for generations, join us at the New Vic this year and let us charm all ages of your family with a story where first impressions are not all they seem, and love and kindness have the power to change the world.
