This Christmas, The Black-E Liverpool will transform in to an enchanted castle as Liverpool based theatre company Drops of Light CIC present their festive offering for 2017, Beauty & the Beast which opens in just over a month.
Beauty & the Beast is a feel good family show that tells the story of a young woman named Beauty (Tori Hargreaves). Beauty lives in a quiet village with her father Egbert the Inventor (Alan Stocks). Beauty feels like she doesn’t belong, her family and friends, including Gorgeous Gaz (Ciaran Kellgren) poke fun at her love of books and she longs for an adventure to take her away.
The adventure Beauty longs for comes in the form of an enchanted castle, home to The Beast (Nick Langmead), Basic Bertie (Adam McCoy) and Dame Dolly (Jamie Greer) who are trapped by a spell, cast to teach The Beast a lesson in judging others. Fairy Rose (Helen Carter) adds a touch of magic to the production as she haplessly tries to reverse the spell and save the castles inhabitants from a life trapped inside its walls.
Beauty & the Beast will run from 6th – 31st December in one of Liverpool’s most iconic arts buildings The Black-E, which stands majestically next to the famous Chinese Arch, offering a magical setting for families to enjoy a unique Christmas treat.
Not to be missed, Beauty and the Beast promises all out magic and sparkle in a show that will appeal to families of all ages.
Please note the performance on Saturday 23rd December at 2pm will be a relaxed performance in order to offer full access to the theatre for people with autism and learning disabilities.
