We are extremely excited to have a family ticket (four people) to Beauty and the Beast at the Theatre Royal, on Tuesday 9th January at 7.15pm, to offer as a prize.
'Don’t miss this year’s spellbinding family pantomime Beauty and the Beast starring much-loved actress, TV star, presenter, and Nottingham native, Sherrie Hewson as Mrs Potts-Temple-Savage, TV and stage star Ben Richards as the Beast/Prince Sebastian and featuring the welcome return of panto favourites Ben Nickless and Andrew Ryan. Musical theatre stars Danny Bayne, Naomi Slights and Natalie Spriggs complete the principal line-up of the pantomime as Trent, Belle and Deadly Nightshade.
Dreaming of a happier life, the beautiful Belle finds herself transported to a spell-bound castle held captive by a hideous beast. Can she see beyond the monster and fall in love with her captor before the last petal falls from the enchanted rose? Or will the Beast’s selfishness cost him the world he once knew and the hand of the girl that has melted his heart?
This unmissable show will be packed with all of the ingredients our audiences have come to expect from the East Midland’s biggest pantomime; lots of laughter, stunning costumes, music and plenty of magic.
Remember - pantomime is really exciting, but it can also be a bit loud and scary in places and sometimes has the odd naughty joke for the grown-ups to enjoy. Beauty And The Beast also contains flashing lights, strobe, pyros, fire, haze, smoke and 3D action, so please bear this in mind if you are planning to bring children under the age of 5 or anyone of a nervous or sensitive disposition.'
I'd like to play a villain! There's something about the audience getting really riled up, booing and hissing at the villains that makes the whole pantomime come alive!! The villains do such a marvellous job of creating the right atmosphere, just the right amount of malice that I'd love to give it a go! I think I'd make a great Malificent, or Evil Queen maybe even a wicked witch! Oh no i wouldn't.. OH YES I WOULD!! and I'd sneak up so well the audience wouldn't get a chance to yell "Shes behind you!!" Muhahahahaha!
I’ve always wanted to be maid Marion from babes in the wood panto. I love maid Marion’s character for several reasons, one she’s stunning, two her boyfriend is the infamous Robin Hood three I love her outfits and most importantly she’s Nottinghams heroine !
