Theatre group to revisit a classic story

CLASSIC fairytale Beauty and the Beast will be brought to life by Hall Green Little Theatre.

CLASSIC fairytale Beauty and the Beast will be brought to life by Hall Green Little Theatre.

The theatre group have decided to move away from the more traditional pantomime and this December’s production will be a play.

However it’s not the first time that the company has adapted the story.

Twice before they’ve brought the tale to life, with this third performance one of several “repeats” organised for HGLT’s 60th anniversary.

The first run happened in 1953 when the play itself was only two-years-old.

Revisiting the story brings back fond memories for member Julia Roden - who was known as Julia Hunt back then.

She played Beauty in the production and more than 50 years later, she’s taking the director’s chair.

Beauty and the Beast will be on until December 12 at the Veitch Theatre, Acocks Green.

Tickets are available from 0121 707 1874 or online at www.hglt.org.uk .
