Nottingham Theatre Royal panto Beauty and the Beast combines fairy tale magic, sizzling special effects and loads of belly laughs
Only the second time since 1867 that Beauty and the Beast has been performed at this theatre.
The production offering a hint of fairy tale magic, some sizzling special effects, colourful costumes and loads of belly laughs thrown in, it will surely be back before another 100 years is up. Comedy moments proved the biggest hits, with cheeky Ben Nickless – back for his fourth panto at the Theatre Royal.
If you’ve got some very young children you might need to hold their hand towards the end of Act One, when Beast slays the kraken – but not before an amazing piece of stagecraft brings it terrifyingly to life within inches of the audience’s noses.
