Beauty and the Beast UK Tour 2021 and my Love of Disney

Disney Classic Beauty and the Beast UK Tour 2021 – 3rd – 30 December

See me in the Beauty and the Beast UK Tour 2021! The upcoming Pantomime season has me incredibly excited, not least because Covid cancelled all Pantomimes last year. Having Pantomime back is really really exciting, but the opportunity to step into a show so closely linked to Disney is what I’m really looking forward to. I have played various Disney characters in the past, from Ariel the Mermaid, to the malevolent Maleficent. I’ve also been involved in a production of the Lion King that was absolutely fantastic to work on.

My Love of Disney

Every production I have the opportunity to work on is special, but there’s always something a little bit magical about being in a production that has ties to Disney. My love for the source material and the way that these stories impacted me as a child, means that they really do hold a special place in my heart. This is why I can’t wait to get out on tour and bring the same magic to theatres across the UK

Over the past year, I have still managed to star in some great theatre roles, but the energy of a Pantomime so near to Christmas, is something else entirely, and I can’t wait! Beauty and the Beast has such a magical feel to it, it’s a classic, and with techniques and playfulness learned in recent productions (Wind in the Willows springs to mind) I am sure it will be a fun, engaging and energetic experience for both the audience and the cast.
