We are thrilled to announce we have finished casting Beauty and the Beast. This year donning some tremendous frocks as Dame Dorothy Do-It is Steve Fortune and playing her hilariously dim witted son, Willy, is Charlie Guest. The title role of Beauty will be played by Lydia Fraser in her Imagine Theatre debut, with Richard Ede as the arrogant bully Eugene and Jeremy Bond as his sidekick, Pimple. Completing this fabulous cast is Airlie Scott as the Enchantress.
