Beauty and the Beast at St Helens Theatre Royal

St Helens Theatre Royal has announced the full cast for its COVID-secure Christmas pantomime for 2020, Beauty And The Beast.

It will run from December 11 through to January 3.

The full cast is Jamie Greer as Potty Polly, Abigail Middleton as Madame Botox, Scott Gallagher as French Frank, Olivia Sloyan as Belle, Andrew Geater as The Beast, Tim Lucas as Gaston and Jenna Sian O’Hara as Fairy Rose.

Beauty And The Beast replaces Cinderella which should have featured Birds Of A Feather star and Loose Women panellist Linda Robson. Government restrictions on theatres made it unviable as it would have been one of the most costly productions to stage.
