Beauty and the Beast

Dec 9, 2022

Production Photography: Robert Days

In the pretty French village of Catherine-de-Barmey, bookish Belle is ready to start a new chapter and find some adventure.

However Belle, and her friend Jacques and his mum, Betty the local bell ringer, get much more than they bargained for when they find themselves trapped inside the enchanted castle of a mysterious beast.

Will true love conquer all? Will the curse of the Enchantress ever be broken? Will Betty drop a clanger?

The award-winning Little Wolf Entertainment (the team behind Cinderella and Robin Hood) return with even more shimmering sets, outrageous costumes, magic and mayhem in this brand new furry-tail adventure!

You won’t belle-ieve your eyes!
