The Dukes in Lancaster presents Beauty & the Beast in the Round Theatre December 3–31.

They welcome back the creative team of Daniel Bye (writer & co-director) and Sarah Punshon (co-director), who previously collaborated on productions of Cinderella: A Fairytale and Sleeping Beauty.

Bella and her mother live alone in the countryside, scrimping and saving to make ends meet. But, not far from their farm, in the forest, there is a terrible secret waiting to be uncovered.

The full cast are Andrea Crewe as Mum, Lisa Howard as Gardener, Ida Regan as Bella, Tarek Slater as Beast and Declan Wilson as Lionel.
