Beauty and the Beast

National Theatre


Following the celebrated production of The Cat in the Hat at the National and Young Vic, director Katie Mitchell brings to the stage this enchanting and timeless fairy-tale.

"There will be magic here on this stage tonight. Do not be fooled: I am no tawdry conjurer.

I have real magic at my fingertips.

Tonight I will take you back through time and make books speak. I will cause mirrors to misbehave, and bring you within touching distance of planets and stars that are eight million light years away. I will raise the dead and make them live and breathe before you!

My powers are infinite, and tonight I devote them to you.

And the story of the Beauty and the Beast."

The wild and lively production explodes with music and magic, and is suitable for girls and boys aged 8 and up.
