Preview: Beauty and the Beast at Hartlepool Town Hall Theatre
It’s almost Panto time in Hartlepool
Beauty and the Beast
Hartlepool Town Hall Theatre
Saturday 14th - Sunday 29th December 2019
There's less than a month to go before the curtain goes up on Hartlepool’s third professional Christmas pantomime, Beauty and the Beast.
This brand new production of Beauty and the Beast features all the fun and frolics of a traditional family pantomime and will open at Hartlepool Town Hall Theatre on Saturday 14th December and runs until Sunday 29th December.
When the Prince refutes the love of the evil Grimalkin she transforms him into a Beast who can only be cured by love’s true kiss. Meanwhile due to an unfortunate mishap with her Father, Maurice, Belle finds herself imprisoned in the Beast’s castle and discovers what lurks inside. Add a good Fairy and a sprinkle of Panto magic and sit back as our story begins…
David Worthington, Head of Cultural Services at Hartlepool Borough Council said: “Last year’s panto Cinderella was a huge success and received excellent reviews from families and so we’re really excited for this year’s panto Beauty and the Beast to be even bigger and better.”
The company behind the production, Elite Pantomimes is the same company that successfully brought Aladdin to Hartlepool Town Hall Theatre in 2016 and Cinderella in 2018.
