Bringing a tale as old as time to Tewkesbury this festive season, The Roses Theatre's annual Christmas pantomime for 2023 is Beauty And The Beast — oh yes it is! 

Written by TV and radio comedy writer, Miranda Walker, the show promises catchy songs, comedy capers and a captivating story delivered by a diverse and talented cast of performers. 

Guaranteed to have audiences of all ages laughing until their sides hurt, this fresh twist on a beloved fairytale classic also aims to remind us that 'true beauty lies within'. 

Much to the delight of big kids, too, The Roses Theatre's adults-only pantomime returns for 2023, with a raucous and risqué version of Beauty And The Beast that's just for over 18s taking place on Friday nights in the lead up to Christmas.
