THE theatre production company behind this year's performances of Beauty & the Beast in Bridgwater has reacted to their sell out shows, and revealed plans for 2024's production.

Locals turned up in numbers to the McMillan Theatre to watch James & Murphy Productions' rendition of the classic fairy-tale, Beauty & the Beast over the festive period.

A spokesperson for the company said: "To see all your happy smiling faces each year makes all the hard work worthwhile.

"Thank you so much for your continued support, claps and cheers!"

They also sent thanks to the show's 'insanely talented' cast members, as well as the 'awesome' live band, and all 35 members of the 'super talented' junior ensemble including our five 'incredible Petite Potts’.

Tickets to their 2024 production can be purchased on the McMillan Theatre website.

"Special thanks to Jo and her wonderful team of chaperones, to Anthony Bruton and Scotty Rowles and their incredible production/tech team at the The McMillan Theatre who worked so hard throughout the year helping us to create our best panto yet," they added.

"We are absolutely honoured to be able to perform at this stunning venue each year."

It doesn't end there however, as they announced tickets are now on sale for 2024's production of Aladdin.
