A cook, a butler, a boot boy and a beautiful narcissistic maid…..Join these four musical storytellers as they take us through a new and very different version of a classic fairytale. Beauty’s father loses their family fortune, so they are forced to leave their beautiful home with servants to move to the country. The servants go along to the country home with them, unpaid, and it is unveiled that ‘cook’ is actually in charge of the Beauty’s fate. When she discovers that her son is in love with Beauty she goes to extreme lengths to bring them together.
“Kenny’s family adaptations are a huge hit in theatres across the country this version of Beauty and the Beast is certainly no exception” – The Public Reviews, UK
