Beauty And The Beast Jr


A classic Disney film and stage show is set to be adapted for younger audiences on a Somerset stage this week.

Beauty And The Beast Jr will feature at Burnham-on-Sea’s Princess Theatre and Arts Centre, in Princess Street, for a three-day stint.

The shows will take place from tomorrow (Thursday) to Saturday at 7.30pm, with a Saturday matinee starting at 2.30pm on July 8.

The play focuses on a beautiful young woman called Belle, and the Beast – who is actually a young prince trapped under a dreadful spell by an enchantress which leaves him with monstrous looks.

To break the curse and return to life as a charming prince he must learn the powers of love.

But time is running out, and he faces life as an outcast if he cannot find a romance which will transform him back into the charming prince.

Tickets for this show, priced £9-10, are available from 01278 784464 or online via
