Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast


What’s in a name? It’s something you’ve got no control over really, unless you choose it yourself – and Beauty definitely DIDN’T choose hers! I mean, imagine being called Beauty. Pressure or what? Judging on appearance is so rude! Especially when everyone in the Kingdom says that her elder sisters are both, well, beautiful. Beauty’s never been into all that. She likes her scruffy playing out clothes, she likes climbing trees, eating sausages, going to market with her Dad, loves Christmas and adores adventures. Which is handy… Because when her Dad gets lost one night and strays into the grounds of an unusual castle, he is captured by something. Something big. And scary. And beastly. And Beauty isn’t going to wait around for a rescue party. Oh no. She’s off to the castle to find out what this something is… and sort it out! This Christmas, the team behind Cinderella, Jack & the Beanstalk and The Snow Queen are back and up to their old tricks again. Expect songs, silliness, thrills, spills and more festive cheer than you can shake a sausage on a stick at!
