WEB Beauty and The Beast

IDEAs presents...


Beauty and the Beast-The Panto!

Step aside Mr Disney, IDEA will bring you the far superior panto version of ‘Beauty and the Beast’!

It’s a great story about love, courage, sacrifice and going on despite everything life throws at you. This story starts when young king Tom is turned into an ugly beast by Delilah, a scorned witch. This spell can only be overturned if someone loves the beastly creature unconditionally. But how will that person see through all the ugliness...?

Then he meets Beauty, the daughter of a now poor merchant, and he falls in love. But is this love mutual? Will Beauty be able to see his friendliness and love underneath all that ugliness? Will she save the king?

Find out for yourself by joining us in a great show full of fun and laughter, excitement and song and dance!

    I.D.E.A. was formed initially in 1992 as a means to allow English speaking people in the area of Dordrecht to participate in the production and performance of amateur theatricals. The major form of production was and still is the annual Christmas panto - a form which is unknown outside the UK. Over the years we have produced pantos (written by our own members) virtually every year, much to the enjoyment of the English resident population and to the delight of many Dutch people, who join in wholeheartedly.
