Synopsis

Belle is a beautiful young girl and the daughter of Mr Cobb, a baker in the village of Yeastville. She's courted by Victor, a nasty vain man but refuses to go out with him. Victor gets annoyed and warns Belle that her father's bakery may have an 'accident' in revenge. One day the Prince of the land comes visiting and takes a shine to Belle. He asks her out but Belle is not sure.

Meanwhile, little do any of them know but they've been the subject of a bet between a fairy and a witch. Fairy Rosebud believe love will win out and Belle and the Prince will one day marry, but Witch Greenfly has other ideas. When things don't go to plan, Greenfly transforms the Prince into a Beast to ensure she wins the bet. After all, who could love a beast?

What will happen to Cobb's bakery? Will Witch Greenfly win her bet and ensure the Prince remains alone in his castle? Will Belle ever find love? Throw in a gruesome twosome in the form of Charlotte and Marzipan, Mr Cobb's stepdaughters and an outrageous cook called Dolly Donut and you have a recipe for a pantomine filled with drama, comedy, slapstick and sadness. A panto that is 'Beauty and the Beast'!

Performed by the Lovelace Theatre Group as only they know how it promises to shape up as a grand evening's entertainment..
