The perfect festive pantomime
The tale of Beauty and the Beast has made its way to Blackpool giving families across the region a magical night to remember. We were lucky enough to catch the show last week and are still smiling at the memories. This take on Beauty and the Beast is true to the original love story between Belle & the Beast, keeping the fans at bay. But in this magical adventure, you will find yourself on a real rollercoaster of emotions - in fits of laughter one minute then reaching for the tissues the next.
From start to finish, the cast were dedicated to their role and each gave a faultless performance. Louis La Plonk (Steve Royle) and his mother Polly La Plonk (Nick Walton) carried the show along and kept the audience in high spirits throughout. The Beast (Danny Walters) gave a stunning performance, showing the depth of his dark character being both sensitive and fiery. Belle (Amelia Adams-Pearce) gave the audience an awe-inspiring performance, especially with her magnificent rendition of ‘This is Me’ that reconfirmed we were experiencing such a high-quality show.
The performances & narrative made for easy viewing (we say this in the nicest way) so that the whole family could appreciate all elements. Furthermore, the stage and props were fantastic and really added to the magic of the show.
The highlight of our night had to be the hilarious ‘Baby Shark’ sing-along with Steve Royle – it had the whole audience fully engaged, even the Grandads were jigging along in their seats! Beauty and the Beast was a magically beautiful show, perfect for the whole family. So, if you are still yet to book your Pantomime trip this year, we highly recommend it! The show continues at The Grand until the 6th January 2019. For performance times and tickets follow the link below.
