Beauty and the Beast – the 2018 Panto at Blackpool Grand Theatre
December 22, 2018 @ 10:15 am - 9:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:15 am, repeating until January 6, 2019
Martin Dodd for UK Productions presents a Brand-New Spectacular Pantomime for all the family, Beauty and the Beast – the 2018 Panto at Blackpool Grand Theatre
Friday 7 December to Sunday 6 January 2019.
Shows at various days/times (from 10.15-7pm) – check the Grand Theatre website for details
The Grand is delighted to announce this year’s cast includes Danny Walters (EastEnders, Benidorm, World War and Call The Midwife) who will star as ‘The Prince (Beast)’, Hayley Kay as the beautiful ‘Fairy Bon Bon’ and Nick Wilton as ‘Polly La Plonk’ all starring alongside panto favourite the incredible Steve Royle (BBC Radio Lancashire) who will be making his 16th annual appearance starring as ‘Louis La Plonk’.
In Beauty and The Beast, Belle is dreaming of a happier life but finds herself transported to a cursed castle. Held imprisoned by a hideous beast, the castle is full of magical characters placed under a spell by an evil enchantress.
Can Belle see beyond the beast and fall in love with her captor before the last petal falls from the enchanted rose? Will the Beast’s selfishness cost him the world he once knew and the hand of the girl who has melted his heart? Featuring sumptuous costumes, magnificent scenery and the unmissable and magical transformation moment, it’s a pantomime not to be missed.
If The Beast cannot find true love then he will die when the last petal falls from the rose.
Joining Walters at Blackpool’s Grand Theatre this year is not one, but two radio legends, Steve Royle from BBC Radio Lancashire who will play Louis La Plonk and local broadcaster Hayley Kay and local favourite, returns as the Magical Fairy Bon Bon.
Nick Wilton will play this year’s Dame. Wilton has appeared at The Grand on more than one occasion in pantomime. Wilton is best known for playing Mr Lister in the BBC soap opera EastEnders.
The incredible dancing stars of Barbara Jackson Theatre Arts Centre will also return with choreography by the incredible Katie Hill.
Blackpool audiences are guaranteed another year of spectacular sets, dazzling costumes and side-splitting comedy. Book your seats today to see Blackpool’s must-see Christmas show in 2018.
