Beauty and the Beast

Lucy Kirkwood and Katie Mitchell
To repay her father’s debt a young girl agrees to live in the castle of a hideous beast only to discover that true love can be found in the most unlikely of places, buried deeper than your heart.

A wild and lively production, filled with magic and wonder, music and dance. The National Theatre’s Christmas treat for the family is guaranteed to be as enchanting and beautiful as its title suggests. Following on from the smash hit The Cat in the Hat, also directed by Katie Mitchell, this may be a very different type of story but it’s one that is sure to be every bit as successful and every bit as thrilling.
