Beauty & the Beast – 2nd December – 14th January 2024
Cork’s favourite traditional family Panto is back. Oh yes, it is! Be our guest for a tale as old as pantomime with Beauty and the Beast.
In a little town (somewhere in Cork, like!), the beautiful Belle dreams of so much more than her simple life. When she discovers a castle (think Blarney or Blackrock) frozen in time under the spell of an enchanted rose and ruled over by a terrible Beast who was once a handsome prince, she must learn to look beyond his appearance if love is to save the day.
With talking teapots, singing candlesticks and clever clocks, this classic tale will delight a whole new generation. Featuring the usual zany gang bringing you non-stop Panto fun, it is directed by the zaniest of them all, Catherine Mahon Buckley.
