On demand: Beauty and the BeastKids event

Watch online on www.cft.org.ukRecorded at Chichester Festival Theatre, Chichester, United Kingdom
Online until Friday 19 June 2020 13:00 (London time zone)

In 2017, the award-winning Chichester Festival Youth Theatre presented a brand new adaptation of Beauty and the Beast by Anna Ledwich (The Butterfly Lion) from the original fairy tale, with music and lyrics by Richard Taylor (Flowers for Mrs Harris).

A cursed prince sits alone in an enchanted castle, destined to remain in monstrous form until he can learn to love and be loved in return. But who could ever love a Beast? Prejudice, jealousy, compassion and love are woven through this magical story, studded with enchanting and deliciously scary characters. The production is suitable for ages 7+.

Dale Rooks, whose work with CFYT includes Grimm Tales, Running Wild and Peter Pan, directs a cast of 72 young people in a visually spectacular show, with set design by Simon Higlett, costumes by Ryan Dawson Laight, lighting by James Whiteside, arrangements by Richard Taylor, musical direction by Colin Billing, sound by Gregory Clarke, movement by Lizzie Gee and puppetry by Nick Barnes.

Suitable for ages 7+
