The Old Rep Theatre are delighted to announce that their Christmas show for 2022 will be the timeless tale of Beauty and the Beast. The show will run from Friday 18th November – Friday 16th December. This will mark the seventh Christmas production that The Old Rep have produced alongside the Birmingham Ormiston Academy (BOA) Group.
This musical adventure follows Belle, a beautiful and intelligent young woman, as she finds herself trapped in an enchanted castle in the depths of the forest captured by the grotesque Beast. Will she learn to love him for who he truly is and break the spell?
Following on from the huge success of Alice in Wonderland in 2021, comes a seasonal adventure for the entire family. With spellbinding storytelling, set to an original score and a few magical surprises along the way this re-imagining of a classic fairytale will excite, entertain and leave you spellbound.
This production promises to be packed with spectacular costumes, catchy original songs, creative choreography and plenty of fun which will make for an unmissable family treat this festive season.
Michael Penn, Executive Director of The Old Rep Theatre said: “Beauty and the Beast is an inspiring tale, perfect for children and families. The Old Rep are delighted to be teaming up with the BOA Group and the creative team behind last year’s wonderful ‘Alice in Wonderland’ to bring a fresh and exciting take on this classic story”.
