beauty and the beast the pantomime

Panto returns to Worthing this Christmas with Beauty and the Beast: The Pantomime; at the Pavilion Theatre from Friday 26 November 2021 to Sunday 2 January 2022.

Following the success of 2019’s Cinderella: The Pantomime and 2020’s The Night Before Christmas, WTM and Paul Holman Associates have teamed up to produce this pantomime. With scenery, costumes and special effects – and traditional pantomime antics, Beauty and the Beast should be an event for the season.

When a handsome Prince is transformed into a frightening Beast by an enchantress as punishment for his vanity, only true love will break the spell. Join Belle and her friends on this adventure as they discover that beauty is more than skin deep, and that we should always look beyond the surface to the heart that lies beneath.

This year’s cast for the Worthing Theatre Panto features Britain’s Got Talent winner Jai McDowall as the Beast, Emmerdale actress Sapphire Elia as Belle and Strictly Come Dancing Robin Windsor as Gaston. They will be joined by comedian and Panto veteran Andre Vincent as Dame Cherie Trifle and Ross Muir as Professor Crackpot. Beauty and the Beast also sees the return of Cinderella’s Katie Pritchard as Crepe Suzette, joined by on-stage twin Josh Haberfield as Philippe Philoppe and Pinocchio’s Dani Hardy returns to the Pavilion as the Enchantress. 

Beauty and the Beast: The Pantomime runs at the Pavilion Theatre from Friday 26 November 2021 – Sunday 2 January 2022. Tickets are available from £10. For more information or to book your tickets visit or call the WTM Box Office on 01903 206 206.

 Golden Week runs from Friday 26 November to Friday 3 December 2021, with all tickets priced £12-£18.
