Beauty and the Beast, the eagerly-awaited pantomime now playing at Devonshire Park Theatre, opened to rave reviews and is on track to becoming Eastbourne Theatres’ best-selling production ever.
Reviewing Beauty of the Beast for the Herald, Kevin Anderson said it had been ‘a flawless, exuberant production and the perfect Christmas treat’.
There has been unanimous praise for the performances of the talented cast: Carley Stenson, Hollyoaks star and seasoned West End performer, who plays the wicked enchantress Malevolent; Emily Bull who stars as the shows heroine Beauty; Adam McNab in the dual role of Prince Gallant and the Beast; David Alder who plays Beauty’s father; and the indefatigable comic duo of Martyn Knight, Dame Derriere and comedian Tucker who is the loveable Potty Pierre.
Eastbourne is famed for producing the best pantomime on the South Coast and Beauty and the Beast is no exception.
The show, which is written, directed and produced by the Eastbourne Theatres creative team, is the undoubted highlight of the theatre’s calendar.
An Eastbourne Theatres’ statement before Christmas revealed that more than 28,000 people had already seen or booked their tickets to see Beauty and the Beast, but there are still plenty of good seats available. So don’t miss out and book now to avoid disappointment.
Beauty and the Beast is at the Devonshire Park Theatre until January 11. Tickets are priced from £12-£20 making it the best value pantomime in the south. To book call the box office on 01323 412000 or go online www.eastbournetheatres.co.uk
