Beauty and the Beast


A fairytale land, far, far away. A handsome young bookworm who always dreamt of more. A hideous beast, in her cursed castle … It's a tale as old as time, as you've never heard it before.

Background


After a critically acclaimed 2017 run, Fat Rascal Theatre return to the King's Head with their Offie nominated, gender-swapped musical parody of Disney's Beauty and the Beast.


With a cast of five and an onstage musician, brace yourself for 90 minutes of boundless energy and musical mayhem as Fat Rascal Theatre explore whether fairy tales really can come true - even when the princess doesn't quite fit the slipper.


Synopsis


She's grotesque.


A possessive beast of a woman, to be sure.


But look on the bright side, Beau: she's got a lovely personality.


Somewhere. Under all the fur.


A fairy tale land, far, far away.


A handsome young bookworm who always dreamt of more.


A hideous beast, in her cursed castle …


It's a tale as old as time, as you've never heard it before.
