South west London's top amateur musical theatre group the Cygnet Players are coming to Fulham with Beauty and the Beast, a family friendly treat for half term.

Based on the 1991 film of the same name, which was in turn adapted from the French fairy tale by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont, Beauty and the Beast tells the story of a prince who is transformed into a hideous beast as punishment for his cruel and selfish ways, and an adventurous young woman named Belle whom he imprisons in his castle.

In order to become human again, the Beast must earn Belle's love before it's too late. Seven new songs were written for the stage musical. Beauty ran on Broadway for 5,461 performances between 1994 and 2007, becoming Broadway's eighth longest-running production in history.

Beauty and the Beast is at the London Oratory School Theatre in Seagrave Road from February 18 - 22 at 7.30pm, with an extra matinee on Saturday at 1.30pm.

You can book tickets online for Cygnet Players' production of this magical show, and see a preview of the show on YouTube.
