Beauty and the Beast was our first panto in the new theatre back in 2012. A show packed with all the comic elements which make this traditional English genre so appealing, yet so demanding for our language students the puns and corny jokes, the hilarious costumes, the animated audience participation, and the special charm of a fairy tale. Once again, under Nick Moore’s skillful direction, our actors and actresses have achieved amazing results. Nowhere will you find a more enthusiastic, hard-working and courageous group of English students, so focused, so disciplined and so committed to a team project. The artwork on stage, the stunning backdrops, the gorgeous costumes, the cleverly-designed props, are the work of an immensely talented artist, our teacher Dennis Carpenter that also played Gaston.
