A ‘tale as old as time’ provides the subject for the latest pantomime from Leadenham Players.

The amateur dramtics group stages Beauty and the Beast at Leadenham Village Hall from next Friday.

It follows their 2015 show of The Snow Queen.

Written by Alan P. Frayn, it is based on the French fairytale successfully adapted for the screen by Disney in 1991.

Join the courageous Belle, the cursed Beast, and a host of colourful characters including Madame Fifi the French Maid, Belle’s older sisters, Ermengarde and Esmerelda, the village hunk Gustave, and lots of more for the family fun.

Performances take place on Friday, January 29, at 6.30pm for 7pm, Saturday, January 30, at 1.30pm for 2.30pm, 6.30pm for 7pm, and Friday, February 5, at 6.30pm for 7pm, and Saturday, February 6, at 1.30pm for 2.30pm, and 6.30pm for 7pm.
