The start of rehearsal signals the start of the pantomime season here at the King's Theatre, and what better way to celebrate it than by having a cast photo shoot?
Let us take you behind-the-scenes to this year's Beauty and the Beast photo shoot and get a first glimpse into the cast, the costumes and what you can expect at this BEAST of a pantomime, with panto favourites Allan Stewart and Grant Stott leading the show as Mrs Potty and Flash Boaby, respectively.
They will be joined by Gillian Parkhouse as Belle, who enchanted audiences and critics alike in the title role of last year’s pantomime, Cinderella, alongside Daniel Cullen as Dougal, Jacqueline Hughes as the Enchantress and Chris Cowley as the Beast.
It was a busy photo shoot, in which we celebrated all things pantomime, Christmas and even New Year! Even sponsor Rowan Glen's Bonnie the Cow and Cash for Kids' Courage made a cameo.
Have a look at our behind-the-scenes gallery and get acquainted with this year's cast.
