Beauty and the Beast at Bournemouth Pavilion Theatre

You'll enjoy plenty of laughs and festive magic this Christmas with this year's Bournemouth pantomime, Beauty and The Beast.

One of the most popular fairy tales of all, Beauty & The Beast is the story of Belle who finds herself imprisoned in an enchanted castle by a prince who has been transformed into a hideous beast by an evil sorceress.

Can Belle see beyond the beast’s appearance and fall in love with her captor? Will the beast return to the world he once knew and win the hand of the girl who has melted his heart?

With a cast of larger-than-life characters, side-splitting comedy, sumptuous costumes, fabulous scenery and a thrilling transformation scene, this traditional family pantomime, written by Jon Monie, won Best Script at the Great British Pantomime Awards 2019, and has garnered 5-star reviews and broken box office records.

Panto favourite Noel Brodie returns to star as Louis La Plonk, with further star casting to be announced
