|It’s that time of year again – oh yes it is!|
Join Prince Rowan who is travelling the country with his friend Thomas, his nurse Madam Lotte and her son Charlie. They arrive in the village of Prettybelle where they meet Panisse, a merchant, and his daughter, Beauty. Rowan falls in love with Beauty, but he is already betrothed from birth to Princess Horridana. Vowing to return for Beauty, he leaves for the castle to break his engagement. Horridana, who is really a Sorceress, brings the full force of her wrath down on Rowan and turns him into a hideous Beast. The only way the spell can be broken is if someone falls in love with him.The story of how Beauty comes to be held captive in the castle, and how she eventually tames the Beast, is told in this traditional Talisman Pantomime with all the larger than life characters, comedy, music and spectacle.
