Beauty and the Beast (Porter)

When Bob Brizzlewink loses his job as a merchant, the family is forced to move to the country and survive by growing vegetables. Bob’s daughter, Belle, constantly squabbles with her sister and struggles to rein in her fierce temper. In fact her only friends seem to be the runks – small rodent beasties that love to munch on the juicy cabbages.

But when Bob finds himself magically transported to a mysterious castle, and threatened by the terrifying Beast, he’s forced to trade his green-fingered daughter for his life. Will Belle’s temper get her into hot water, or will she and the savage Beast be able to tame one another? A brand new version of the classic story, containing magic, music, and moments to haunt and delight you in equal measure.
