Here’s all you need to know about the 2023 Panto at Sunderland Empire this festive season!
The show this year will be Beauty and The Beast with tickets on sale 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.
As usual a talented cast will be bringing the magical tale to the stage this festive season.
Starring in this year’s show will be North East Queen of Comedy, the fabulous Miss Rory (Boulevard) as Rorina La Plonk and local comic Tom Whalley as Louis La Plonk.
Joining them will be star of Emmerdale and Ackley Bridge, Charlie Hardwick as Fairy Bon Bon, Channel 5 Milkshake! presenter Olivia Birchenough as Belle and West End star Samuel Wyn-Morris (Les Misérables) as the monstrous Beast.
Join Belle, The Beast, Fairy Bon Bon, larger than life Rorina La Plonk and her cheeky chappy son Louis La Plonk as they are transported to a cursed castle, under the spell of an evil enchantress. Can the wicked Hugo be defeated, can Belle see beyond the Beast and fall in love with her captor, will the Beasts heart be melted by Belle’s beauty?
Beauty and The Beast plays at Sunderland Empire from 8 December 2023 until 31 December 2023.
