The magic of the Teller of Tales brings us the story of Beauty (Belle) and her impoverished family and The Beast. They are held captive in his palace and garden, with a motley collection of Nursery Rhyme characters, by the spell of the evil Taletwister. A stolen rose brings them together, but can the Teller of Tales bring their story to a happy ending, or will the Taletwister destroy their hopes of living “Happily ever after” and, incidentally, manage to steal all the nursery rhymes from little children for ever? Well it’s a panto, so surely good must triumph in the end…….mustn’t it?
