Rehearsals are in full swing at Derby Arena for this year’s spectacular family pantomime Beauty and the Beast.

Set in the little French village of Spondon-on-the-Seine Belle is pursued by the handsome but not too bright local heartthrob Gaston (Aston Dobson). She yearns for adventure, but soon gets more than she bargained for when, along with her neighbours Idle Jacques (CBeebies’ Mr Bloom) and his mother Betty Brioche (Morgan Brind), she finds herself trapped inside an enchanted castle by a mysterious beast. Will true love conquer all? Will the Enchantress' (Gwen Taylor) curse ever be broken? Will Betty Brioche burn her baguettes?

Beauty and the Beast co-produced by Derby LIVE and Little Wolf Entertainment will open on Tuesday 5 December and will run to Sunday 31 December 2017, tickets priced from £13.50 with concessions, group, school and family tickets available.
