We are excited to announce that our 2018 pantomime will be performed in the first week of January at Cadbury Hall, Frampton on Severn, Gloucestershire, GL2 7HG.
Written by Bradford and Webster and in arrangement with NODA, our 2018 pantomime see the production team of Rhys Maule as produced, Craig Hunt debuts as director and fresh to the group is Nathan French as choreographer. The team have worked together before on projects outside of the group and Beauty and the Beast will see the team debut with this production.
A dramatic pantomime full of colourful characters, Belle lives in the village of Petit Pois with her mean older sisters, Chardonnay and Lambrini.
Their impoverished mother, Madame Dolores Lilly Chantilly Tres Jolie (or Dolly Jolly), is keen to marry them off to rich husbands. The vain and egotistical Jean-Claude and the spoiled but good-natured Prince Louis both have their eye on Belle.
Chardonnay and Lambrini want Jean-Claude for themselves and continually try to outdo each other, to get him to notice them.
Meanwhile, the evil Countess Cruella is obsessed with Prince Louis and, in a jealous rage, she turns him into a hideous beast. The girls’ Papa, lost in the mountains, is imprisoned by the angry Beast. Papa’s horse, Gigi, then leads Belle to the Beast’s castle, where Belle offers to take her father’s place in the Beast’s dungeon.
Belle’s kindness calms the Beast’s anger and he falls in love with her…… Will true love prevail or will the beast remain cursed forever.
