Event Description

When an arrogant Prince is cursed to live as a beast his only hope of salvation is to find love before the last petal falls from a magic rose. When pretty village girl, Beauty comes into his life is this the chance he has been waiting for?

X Factor stars Amelia Lily and Andy Abraham join the cast of this year’s magical pantomime as The Enchantress and Mr Crust.

Appearing alongside returning White Rock favourites, the hilarious Ben Watson (Billy Pastry) and fabulous dame, Tim McArthur (Nanny Pastry).

Ben starred in a UK tour of Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em this year alongside Joe Pasquale and will be returning for his TENTH panto in Hastings! For Tim, this will be his fifth appearance as the White Rock’s finest dame. Since last year, he’s been busy performing his cabaret show in Chicago and as alter ego Sister Mary McArthur in New Jersey, USA.

Amelia Lily came third in the 2011 series of The X Factor, mentored by Kelly Rowland. The powerhouse singing pop star reached No.2 in the UK chart with her single, You Bring Me Joy.
