Regal Entertainments are egg-cited to present their enchanting Easter pantomime Beauty and the Beast at St Helens Theatre Royal and St Helens Reporter has three pairs of tickets for readers to win.

Taking place this Saturday, April 1 to Sunday, April 23, the Tale as Old as Time will capture your heart this Easter, so finish off your chocolate eggs and prepare to be swept away by this magical story.

The family friendly pantomime brings to life the original, timeless story of a selfish and hot tempered prince who is turned into a hideous monster as punishment for his cruel ways and told he must win the affection of a beautiful, young girl in order to regain his humanity.

Channel 5 Milkshake’s Amy Thompson leads the cast as the beautiful Belle, trapped in a provincial town.

Get ready to go on an adventure and follow her as she falls in love with the most unexpected of Princes with Richard Hazelwood as the Beast. Will the beast learn to love and be loved? Will the spell be broken and he will be transformed to his former princely self?  If not, he and his household will be doomed for all time.

Also trying to win Belle’s heart is Philip McGuinness as the brutish Gaston, and adding some extra sparkle will be legendary Big Brother housemate Nikki Grahame as Fairy Rose.  The hilarious Liam Mellor will be causing mayhem and mischief as French Frank and St Helens’ resident dame, Simon Foster completes the cast as Potty Polly.

This charming tale is filled with hilarious comedy, wonderful songs and a story which proves that even the grumpiest of Beasts can change his ways.

Make sure to book your tickets before the final rose petal falls – this is sure to be the must-see Easter event of 2017! For more information visit
