Lee Mengo on Beauty and The Beast: "“Its complete panto, I think some people might expect the Disney version of Beauty and The Beast but you won’t get that! There are a couple of original songs in there, which is really nice. Lots of different stuff going on, but its still panto."

Elin Llwyd on Beauty and The Beast: "“The amount of times I've told people what the panto is this year and they’ve returned with “Oh, are you playing The Beast?
