Charlotte McLachlan plays Beauty. She is probably best known for being in the Annie stage show.

This show features many memorable moments including a flying dragon, skeletons that dangle from the ceiling, bears scaring people singing Ghostbusters and so much more.

This is a fun family panto to see this Christmas. It runs until Sunday, January 7, 2018.
