Beastly Belle - Hereford Courtyard Family Festival


Be charmed and surprised by a new twist on an old tale, inspired by the iconic era of 1920's and 30's cinema.

Our young heroine Belle is plucked from a life of poverty by Merill, a greedy film producer who sweeps her off her feet and into fame and fortune in the movies. Caught up in the glitz and glamour Belle forgets her roots and is ensnared by a world obsessed with good looks – but looks aren’t everything, right?

A journey of discovery which explores perceptions of physical beauty and how two strangers can overcome their differences. Will Beauty come to understand and accept the Beast?

Featuring a skilful mix of puppetry, film projections and an original musical score.

Norwich Puppet Theatre: One of only a handful of dedicated puppet theatres in England, Norwich Puppet Theatre is a hub for leading international puppeteers and theatre makers. Using traditional and contemporary puppet craft, Norwich Puppet Theatre productions bring a fresh twist to well loved fairy tales and stories which entrance children and adults alike.
