Beauty & the Beast

Newcastle Tyne Theatre & Opera House

Saturday 30th – Sunday 31st March 2024


The Tyne Theatre & Opera House are proud to once again host an exciting pantomime to celebrate the Easter weekend, performing across Saturday 30th March and Sunday 31st March 2024. From the same team as The Wizard of Oz and Rapunzel, Beauty & the Beast will be a fun-filled adventure that families won’t want to miss.

This year, guests are in for an eggcellent time, as the cast is bigger and better than ever! Lee Latchford-Evans will be starring as the Prince/Beast; he’s best known as one fifth of Steps, but this will be his 12th professional pantomime! CBBC (Bear Behaving Badly) and Blue Peter star Barney Harwood is Gaston. After 25 years in the business, becoming a staple to children’s TV as a natural comedy actor, the BAFTA winner will play the villain.

The Britain’s Got Talent 2020-star Steve Royle stars as Silly Billy. Steve came third on BGT, and his excitable stage presence is perfect for a panto! The Dumping Ground’s Carma Hylton will play Good Fairy and the talented Ellena Bacon tells the tale as old as time as Belle, after previously being the star of 2023’s Rapunzel. Also returning to the Tyne Theatre & Opera House is panto favourite Lewis Denny, returning as Dame Betty Baguette, so fans won’t want to miss out!

With a star-studded cast, plenty of jokes, songs and audience participation, families will love Beauty & the Beast. The spellbinding story tells the tale of Belle who longs for romance and adventure, and a Prince who has been transformed into a Beast to learn the error of his ways.

Make some cracking plans this Easter holiday and put a spring in your step with Enchanted Entertainment’s Beauty & the Beast.

Theatre Director Joanne Johnson states, “Our pantomimes with Enchanted Entertainment are always popular, and we’re thrilled to be hosting another pantomime for families to enjoy. We love to be a part of people’s traditions, whether that’s at Christmas or at Easter. Making memories in a theatre is a great family activity, and we’re thrilled about the exciting cast that’ll be spending the weekend with us!”
