Beauty and the Beast at The Court Theatre

Beauty and the Beast at The Court Theatre

Beauty is more than skin deep in a family favourite making a magical appearance these school holidays in BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, at The Court Theatre from September 29 – October 11.

Writer and director Greg Cooper has adapted the classic tale of magic, romance and how appearances can be deceiving to appeal to children and parents of all ages. Beauty must stay in the palace of a hideous but lonely Beast after her father tries to pick her a magical rose. With the help of a magic mirror, Beauty learns to see beyond the surface – but will she realise her true feelings in time?

Torum Heng (last seen at The Court in The Producers and recent touring show The Magic Island) stars as Beauty, Javier Jarquin (The History Boys, The Cape) plays the Beast and Daniel Bain (Robin Hood & Maid Marian, Aunty McDuff’s Magical Trunk) is the magical mirror.

With music, magic and mystery (and all tickets only $7), BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is certain to be a very popular show – book your tickets early to avoid missing out on this fun family fairy-tale!
