The Unicorn's Christmas offering is a new version of this classic tale. Read More >

Phil Porter, the author of previous shows Cinderella and The Flying Machine, returns to the Unicorn with his new version of the classic story Beauty And The Beast.

When Bob Brizzlewink loses his job as a merchant, the family is forced to love to the country and survive by growing vegetables. Bob’s daughter Belle constantly squabbles with her sister and struggles to rein in her fierce temper. In fact her only friends seem to be the runks – small rodent beasties that love to munch on the juicy cabbages.

But when Bob finds himself magically transported to a mysterious castle, and threatened by the terrifying Beast, he is forced to trade his green-fingered daughter for his life. Will Belle’s temper get her into hot water or will she and the savage Beast be able to tame one another?

Beauty And The Beast is suitable for anyone over the age of seven.
