St Helens Theatre Royal is thrilled to announce it’s Covid-secure Christmas pantomime for 2020, the enchanting tale of Beauty And The Beast.
Producers Regal Entertainments recently announced that the panto would still go ahead in St Helens this Christmastime, despite a change to the previously announced show.
Beauty And The Beast will now run at St Helens Theatre Royal from Friday 11 December 2020 through to Sunday 3 January 2021, 6pm-8pm. Tickets are on sale now here.
Show times vary over weekends and during the festive period, with additional morning and matinee shows.
The countdown is now on to bring Beauty And The Beast to life on stage in St Helens, with all the high production values and comedy that audiences have come to enjoy.
The highly anticipated show is sure to be a popular choice this festive season, especially given the lack of theatre productions over the last six months and audiences craving live entertainment.
Audiences are reassured that St Helens Theatre Royal and the team behind Beauty And The Beast will be fully adhering to social distancing measures and Government guidelines to ensure the safety of theatregoers, venue staff, cast and crew.
St Helens Theatre Royal also reopened its telephone booking line this week (see the number below), so tickets can be bought over the phone between 10am and 2pm from Monday to Thursday. Tickets can also be purchased online, however the theatre will remain closed for in-person bookings.
The full cast of Beauty And The Beast has been announced as Jamie Greer as Potty Polly; Abigail Middleton as Madame Botox; Scott Gallagher as French Frank; Olivia Sloyan as Belle; Andrew Geater as The Beast; Tim Lucas as Gaston; and Jenna Sian O’Hara as Fairy Rose.
The show will be directed by Chantelle Nolan, written by Liam Mellor, with choreography by Nazene Langfield, and Callum Clarke as musical supervisor.
Covid-secure safety measures being implemented include reduced capacity auditorium, temperature checks, the wearing of face masks, deep cleaning, and pre-order drinks and confectionery. Additional details will be announced in the coming weeks.
