The Shaw Theatre's annual panto always has a star cast, some spectacular panto magic, lots of slapstick humour and heaps of audience participation.
This year they're going for the story of Beauty and the Beast. A princess longs for a bit of romance and adventure, but ends up falling for a bad-mannered Prince who is transformed into a Beast to teach him a lesson. Will the good Fairy be able to make both their dreams come true? (Well, duh!)
