Hayes Beck Theatre have announced star casting and details for their 2023 pantomime!

The venue is teaming up with Imagine Theatre to present Beauty and The Beast this festive season, running 8 – 31 December 2023.

The cast will feature boyband favourite Antony Costa playing the arrogant but charismatic ‘Bear Bottemme’.

He said: “I’m so excited to be working with Imagine in panto again. We have a sensational cast, tonnes of comedy and maybe a few musical numbers you might recognise from a certain boy band! It’s going to be great fun. The perfect start to Christmas! Come and see us at the Beck Theatre… I can’t wait to get my teeth into Bear Bottemme!”

Star of stage and screen Mina Anwar will join Anthony as the Enchantress while funny man Joe Pollard returns to the Beck stage as Billy Pastry.

When an arrogant Prince is cursed to live as a beast his only hope of salvation is to find love before the last petal falls from a magic rose.

When village girl Belle comes into his life, is this the chance he has been waiting for?

Steve Sargeant, Theatre Director at Beck Hayes said: “We couldn’t be more delighted to welcome these stars of stage, screen and music into the magical world of Beauty & The Beast! Being able to welcome household names, as well as family favourites to the Beck is hugely exciting and we’re counting down the days until the curtain raises. Make sure you book early so you don’t miss out!”
