Leanne Jones - Beauty and the Beast
Olivier Award-winning Hairspray star Leanne Jones will be starring as Fairy Ooh La La in Beauty and the Beast at The Woodville Theatre, Gravesend this Christmas for Wicked Productions.
From the Producers of last year’s spectacular laugh-out-loud production, Peter Pan, comes a Beast of a pantomime for 2019!
A handsome prince is cursed to spend his life transformed into a hideous beast.
Join them to discover if Belle and her friends - the ‘glamorous’ Dame Darcy Derrière’ and her willfully witless son, Phillippe Philoppe - can outwit the arrogant bully Clarence Casanova, and lift the curse.
Let yourself be whisked away to the sleepy French town of Château de toilet where you’ll join in a race against time filled with fun, adventure and laughter.
With spectacular scenery, fabulous costumes, incredible special effects and bags of slapstick fun, Beauty and the Beast is delight for all the family to enjoy.
"I have been working alongside young people in Gravesham for quite some time now and also live in the borough so I'm proud to be a part of this production. Making sure that panto is fun and entertaining is also accompanied with creating positive role models and influences for young people, and that's something that Wicked Productions are really good at. There has been a lot of press recently surrounding bullying on social media, especially based on how people look. Beauty and The Beast is a lovely story about looking beyond people's appearance and seeing the good in everyone. I hope that this really superb show will be great entertainment for families but also reinforce a really positive message."
