The Story

The show is a typical fun family pantomime set in the Village of Cabaret and the Enchanted Castle, where the traditional struggle of good over evil takes place. The princes are identical twins, one good and the other bad. The evil prince puts a curse on his brother and turns him into The Beast so he can take the crown. The Widow Bonbon, the dame who runs a sweet shop, comes to the rescue by starting a revolution to get rid of the bad prince. She is assisted by the Red Rose Fairy who has the power to alter the curse and grant wishes, and by daughters, Sherbet, Flossy and Candy. The two traffic wardens are the comedy duo and the chorus is made up of villagers, jelly babies and various monsters. All ends happily (surprise, surprise!) with The Beast turning back into the good prince who marries the Beauty, Bonnie. Good clean fun for all the family.
