Beauty and the Beast sweeps into St Helens Theatre Royal April 5–16.

Belle is a beautiful young woman who falls in love with the most unexpected of princes, one who has been cursed to live as a hideous beast. Will the Beast learn how to love and be loved in return—and will the spell be broken in time for a happily ever after?

The cast includes Lauren McCrory as Belle, Benjamin Keith as the Beast, Auguste Voulton as Gaston, Lewis Devine as French Frank, Abigail Middleton as Madam Botox, Marie Lovelady as Fairy Rose and Richard Aucott as Potty Polly.

The show is written by Liam Mellor and directed by Chantelle Nolan. Nazene Langfield is choreographer and Callum Clarke is music supervisor.
