We are thrilled that Basildon’s favourites, SIMON FIELDING and SOPHIE LADDS, will be returning to our stage in 2021! Simon said: “We’ve been working hard on our version of Beauty and the Beast since January and already have a hilarious script, amazing song choices, tons of surprises and possibly the most magical Ballroom scene you could ever wish for. I know when we bring this spectacular pantomime to you next year, it will be the most beautiful and exciting production and I can’t wait to be with you all again.”

We are already predicting that demand for Beauty and the Beast 2021-22 will be the highest we have experienced at the Towngate, so if you haven’t already secured your seats we would strongly recommend booking as soon as possible!
