Why See Beauty and the Beast: A Christmas Rose?
An interactive Christmas delight
Get ready to experience a traditional British pantomime in the heart of California with this raucous new production of the classic fairytale, with added fun and festive frolics. A seasonal highlight across the pond, pantomime (panto for short,) is a time-honoured rite of passage, a delightfully vibrant and zany fusion of story, satire, song and dance where audience participation not just encouraged, it's part of the show!
Written by Kris Lythoe, and with direction from Tony-nominated Sheldon Epps and choreography by Mandy Moore (La La Land) and a throughly talented cast ready to make you laugh and gasp, you're in the best hands for this outrageous family outing - with a British twist.
