Q & A – BEAUTY AND THE BEAST 2017

This Christmas, the panto magic will be sprinkled in abundance as Watersmeet, Rickmansworth, welcome a new pantomime production company to the venue - with a wealth of experience and a proven track record. Jordan Productions will be presenting the classic tale as old as time, Beauty and the Beast, told in true pantomime style.

Q) Who is starring in this year’s pantomime?

A) Sue Holderness (Marlene from Only Fools and Horses) is starring as Malevolent. Joining Sue are Britain’s Got Talent finalists Kieran Sutcliffe and Sarah Jameson.

Q) How much are tickets for Beauty and the Beast?

A) Depending on the date you select, adult tickets are price at £10/£15/£18.50/£20/£21.50 with child and adult concessions available. For carers, tickets are available free of charge to anybody who is accompanying a person(s) with a disability. Proof is required.

Q) How long is the show?

A) It is approximately 2½ hours with an interval just over half way through.

Q) Will we have the opportunity to meet the cast?

A) This is something we encourage the cast to do after each performance, but we are unable to guarantee this.
Bigger, better and beastlier than any panto seen in Rickmansworth, Beauty and the Beast will not disappoint with live music, wonderful sets, beautiful costumes and rip-roaring adventure in true panto style!   

Q) What age group is it suitable for?

A) 2-103! Under 2s can see the show at no cost provided they are seated on an adults lap. If you’re not sure if your young child will enjoy the show, this is a great way to introduce them to live theatre.

Q) Am I entitled to a concession ticket?

A) Concession tickets are available for adults over 60 and children up to the age of 18 in full time education.

Q) Do you have a tiered pricing structure and can we pre-book our seats?

A) Seating during each performance is one price and will be allocated to you at the time of reservation/booking. Seating is on a gentle slope from row A-S.

Q) I have mobility difficulties. Where can I sit?

A) For health and safety reasons, patrons using a walker or wheelchair will be allocated seats at the rear of the auditorium. Please advise the Box Office at the time of booking as these seats are limited.
Beauty and the Beast will be full of all the essential panto ingredients plus a few added extra’s along the way, as Potty Pierre and Dame Derriere wreak havoc and the Evil Malevolent plots her dastardly deeds.

Q) Can we bring in car seats?

A) You may bring along the base of a car booster seat or cushion to allow your child a better view of the stage.

Q) Can we bring our own food? Do you have a café/restaurant? Can we pre-book interval drinks?

A)No, this is not permitted. A range of refreshments and snacks are available at all performances. Refreshments and light snacks can be purchased at the bar or the kiosk. You can also order interval drinks in advance by contacting the Front of House Manager or on the day.

Q) Where can we park?

A) For more information, visit ...
