HHTheatreCo are very proud to present this years Pantomime, Beauty and the Beast by Ben Crocker.

Handsome Prince Christophe is placed under an enchantment by the wicked witch, Malabelle. Doomed to live as a Beast, unless he can win a loving kiss which leads to wedded bliss. To save her mother’s life, the village beauty, Rose, goes to live with the Beast in his fantastical Castle. After a scary start, the two become friends and slowly become closer… Despite Malabelle’s best efforts, true love wins the day – and not only for Beauty and her Beast, but also for her brother, his girlfriend – and for Felix, a smart talking French poodle, who thinks the show is all about him…

Everyone and anyone is welcome to audition.  Whether you’re already a member of HHTheatreCo or new to the company, you’ll be very welcome.
