Yes, it’s panto season and The Whitehaven Theatre Group have got their seasonal delight – Beauty and The Beast – ready to unveil for those of you prepared to brave the evil Countess Cruella and the Beast himself. Of course, you’ll be joined by lots of others to ward off any danger including the beautiful Belle, her ‘lovely’ sisters (Chardonnay and Lambrini) and her mother, Dame Dolly.

The WTG are promising a show which will be ‘fantastic, hilarious and entertaining’ and I’m told there will be some great production numbers including “All about that bass” and “I feel pretty” – something for everyone in fact!

The group will be taking over Egremont Market Hall from Tuesday 8th December until Saturday 12th December and performances start at 7pm. There’s also two matinee opportunities on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th December at 1pm. Tickets on sale and already going fast so book them while you still can by going online to, or contact Whitehaven Theatre Group direct on 07588051941
