KD Theatre Productions return for their fifth Christmas at The Maltings in Ely, this time performing the classic tale of ‘Beauty and the Beast’.
Running from December 22 until January 14 and sarring Ely’s favourite pantomime dame, Terry Gauci, it tells the story of a young girl named Beauty as she becomes the Beast’s prisoner in order to save her father.
As time goes on, Beauty realises the Beast is not all that bad, but are her feelings strong enough to keep the Beast alive from the wicked
curse placed upon him by the evil Poison Ivy.
Will Fairy Rose be able to weave her magic to help break the curse? Will Dame Mary Bakewell and her son, Willy-Do-It, ever get the cooking done?
Also joining the cast is Robin Hatcher (Cbeebies ‘Justins House’), Cameron Hay, Gregory Hazel, Terry Burns, Lucinda Withers and Lucy Bell as Beauty. Katherine Hickmott is the choreographer for the panto.
Daniel Bell, producer and director, said: “We are delighted to be back for our fifth year.
“Ely is our home city and we are so proud of how the pantomime has grown over the years.
“Our audiences are very supportive. They can expect all the usual ingredients of our spectacular pantomimes plus some new surprises which we are really excited about.”
