The Glasgow King’s Theatre 2022 Christmas panto will be the magical romantic pantomime adventure Beauty and the Beast. Starring Elaine C Smith alongside Johnny Mac.

Packed with all of the traditional panto ingredients King’s Theatre audiences expect, Beauty and the Beast will feature laugh-out-loud comedy, stunning scenery, beautiful costumes and plenty of boos and hisses. See it from Saturday 26th November till Saturday 31st December 2022.

Dreaming of a happier life, the beautiful Belle finds herself transported to a cursed castle and held captive by a hideous beast. To her surprise, the castle is full of magical characters placed under a spell by an evil enchantress. Can Belle see beyond the monster and fall in love with her captor before the last petal falls from the enchanted rose? Or will the Beast’s selfishness cost him the world he once knew and the hand of the girl who has melted his heart?

One of the most romantic pantos of all time, Beauty and the Beast stars pantomime legends Elaine C Smith and Johnny Mac, in what will be a spectacular and enchanting production for all the family.
