BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (article first published : 1999-11-20)

Beauty and the Beast was the critically-acclaimed inaugural production of the highly imaginative and innovative puppet company Creative Madness. This charming and successful show returns to Durban by popular demand for the first time since it was created in 1997 after which it played numerous festivals and theatres around the country. At this year's Grahamstown Festival, it was regarded as one of the festival's highlights.

The return season features the original cast with Peter Court (who also directs), Philippa Savage and Greg King performing alongside a host of puppets and masked characters. The show offers a unique combination of theatrical elements, incorporating puppetry, live acting, masks, mime and fairy-tale music (composed by Anthony Stonier) all cleverly interwoven to create a visual and strikingly original production to will delight children and adults alike.

Beauty and the Beast will be presented at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from December 17 to 24 at 11h00 daily with additional performances at 14h00 on December 18 and 24 (no show on December 19). Tickets at R25 (R20 children 12 and under) through Computicket. Details and block booking discounts of 10 or more people (R15 for both adults and children) from Philippa on (031) 312-3113 or 082 789-6664.
