First details about the 2023 Panto at Folkestone’s Leas Cliff Hall have been revealed.
Produced by PHA Pantomimes, this year’s show will be Beauty and The Beast with tickets available to buy now here.
The magical tale tells the story of a prince, cursed to live as a terrifying monster until he finds true love, and a village girl called Belle, who draws the cold-hearted beast out of his isolation with help from some enchanted friends.
As always a talented and star-studded cast will be bringing the tale to the stage this festive season.
First to be announced is John Lyons, best known for his long-running TV role in A Touch of Frost, playing the professor.
When a magical sorceress transforms the handsome Count into a frightening Beast, only true love will break the spell. In a tale as old as panto-time, join bookworm Belle and a whole host of colourful characters on a journey to discover that true beauty is more than just skin-deep.
With plenty of audience participation and huge helpings of laughter combined with spectacular scenery, captivating costumes and enchanting special effects, Beauty and the Beast is the traditional family pantomime that will leave you spellbound.
Beauty and The Beast runs at Folkestone’s Leas Cliff Hall from 8 December 2023 until 31 December 2023.
