Live music, puppetry and adventure as the Lamphouse Theatre perform Beauty and the Beast at Crowland Abbey in December
The Lamphouse Theatre returns to Crowland Abbey on Saturday, December 8, to perform the original French fairytale, Beauty and the Beast.
It tells how young Beauty’s life is changed forever when her poor merchant father picks her a rose from the Beast’s dazzling castle garden.
Beauty becomes mistress of the enchanted castle and befriends the misunderstood Beast who lavishes her with gifts. But one day Beauty breaks her promise and leaves the castle. The Beast becomes sick with heartbreak - but can Beauty save him in time?
It's a tale of love and adventure, whilst also examining morals, truth, friendship, bravery, fairness and forgiveness.
Becky Owen-Fisher, producer of Lamphouse Theatre, said: “This year’s Christmas show will be full of live music, puppetry and adventure.
“We have three talented actor-musicians taking on the many roles in the story and we’re working with puppetry specialists System of Strings theatre company to create some exciting surprises!”
Tickets are £5 per person and can be bought from the Abbey itself or Bridge Hardware in Crowland.
