About

Join us this Christmas for our magical Mercury panto, Beauty and the Beast!

It’s a tale as old as time and a panto that will be unmissable for the whole family. Discover what it takes for true love to conquer all and whether love is all you really need?

The mysterious Beast imprisons Beauty in his enchanted castle. Can she escape with the help of her family and melt the Beast’s icy heart before it’s too late? Will Cupid’s plan work before the last rose petal falls?

Leading our talented cast in this delicious treat are pantomime royalty, Antony Stuart-Hicks and Dale Superville. Written by Andrew Pollard (Aladdin, Cinderella) and directed by the Olivier awarding-winning Donnacadh O’Briain.

Come to Colchester this Christmas and fall in love all over again!
