Chris Hannon / Beauty and the Beast

Chris Hannon / Beauty and the Beast


The incredible CHRIS HANNON is back at Theatre Royal Wakefield for Christmas this year in BEAUTY AND THE BEAST 18 November – 3 January.

Written by Chris himself, Theatre Royal Wakefield’s magical family pantomime returns in 2021 with a tale that’s as old as time itself.

There was once a pompous, preening Prince, cursed by a magical enchantress for his cruel behaviour. Transformed into a brutish beast, the Prince lived out his miserable days deep within the forest. Left with a solitary rose, the enchantress warns – as long as it blooms, he’ll stay alive.

Back in the village, the locals prepare for a cooking contest like no other. In order to secure his victory, one courageous cook decides to go in search of a very special ingredient in the depths of the forest; the legendary rose. Little does he know, this flower’s got powers and it’s not to be medalled with!

Brought to you by the same fantastic team behind Jack and the Beanstalk, Cinderella and Aladdin, and with world famous Dame, Chris Hannon once more returning to the Wakefield stage. Join us for this magical tale. It could be beautiful; it may get beastly – but one things for sure, it will have the cheesiest jokes in town!
