Pantomime season is creeping up on us and earlier this week the cast of Eastbourne’s offering, Beauty and the Beast, was revealed to the public.

Ex-Hollyoaks’ actress Carley Stenson will take to the stage as the wicked witch, while West End star Emily Bull will step into the shoes of Belle during the five-week production, which is at the Devonshire Park Theatre between December 12 and January 11. Popular local duo Martyn Knight and Tucker will provide the laughs as comedy acts Dame Derriere and Potty Pierre in the show respectively. Tickets can be bought from the box office by calling 01323 412000.
