About Beauty and the Beast
It's Panto time again. Oh yes it is!
East Kilbride Rep Theatre are quietly getting getting their panto team together to run the 2017 Pantomime, The Beauty and The Beast.
This is a well known fairy tale which was captured by Disney for their 1991 animation and which was followed up with a film in 2017 and is now being brought to the East Kilbride stage in November and December 2017 by the EK Rep Theatre and is being specially written and adapted by Neil Cox for the EK Rep at the East Kilbride Village Theatre.
All the usual characters will be there. It opens with Beauty wandering into the Beast's castle, but can she escape? Can, Can Khan the tiger, save her? Will Ma Bunions and her hapless duo Peelie and Wallie help Beauty's father to defeat the evil Gargon and his sidekicks Scroggs and Groggs? Or, will they need some magic from fairy Nuff?
An unmissable night of fun, song and dance backed by a chorus of 40 talented, local children all of whom are about to go into their gruelling but enjoyable rehearsal period.
Indeed, a few were good enough to become professional, e.g. Julie Wilson Nimmo (Balamory’s Miss Hoolie) and Jacqueline Hughes (currently in Wicked).
Don't be disappointed. Book NOW. Get yourself down to the booking office in the Beast's castle (Actually EK Arts Centre, Old Coach Road).
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Beauty and the Beast are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
