A beautiful enchantress disguised as an old beggar woman arrives at a castle during a ball and offers the host, a cruel and selfish prince, a rose in return for shelter from a storm. When he refuses, she reveals her identity.
To punish the prince for his lack of compassion, the enchantress transforms him into a beast and his servants into household objects, then erases the castle, the prince and his servants from the memories of their loved ones. She casts a spell on the rose and warns the prince that the curse will only be broken if he learns to love another, and earn their love in return, before the last petal falls.
We start our Panto some years later where the book-loving local girl, Belle dreams of adventure. A Tale as old as time – the important message in Beauty and The Beast is never to judge the book by it’s cover. Throw in a number of strange and interesting characters with sparkling comedy and high class musical numbers and this year’s Panto offering from the Limerick Panto Society promises a great night’s entertainment for all the family.
