Synopsis

Stannington Players present the story of Beauty and the Beast. The original story was written in 1740, which is almost quarter to six, but our version is a little more up to date. The original French author, for example, completely omitted Dame Patty Potty, the bewildered castle cook. And Beauty’s father, the dotty professor, who invents a Beautification Upgrade Mechanism (BUM for short). And what about the two fast-talking salesmen, always on the look-out for a profitable opportunity. Add to this a hiss-able baddie who wants to marry Beauty, a glamorous enchantress, and a fearsome Beast with a soft heart, and the stage is set for two hours of comedy, chaos, audience participation, music and dancing. And did I mention the enchanted Clock and Candlestick? Or the dancing horse? And does Beauty fall in love with the Beast so all ends happily?
