Imagine being 7 years old and having a castle as your playground! Think of all the exciting adventures that would await around every corner, down hidden passageways or perhaps the West Wing. Having a cheeky personality and an inquisitive nature, you would never have a dull moment as your day is filled with a family of friends. But when you are transformed into a cup, things may become rather restrictive and you could start to develop a chip on your shoulder! Alyssia Jade is over the moon that she gets to burst open those dusty stage doors as Chip the teacup. Having a contagious enthusiasm, and timing with the cutest one liners she will make you want to cuddle your teddybears and bring out those baby blankies!

When visiting a grand castle one must remember that the head housekeeper has many jobs to do across the vast location and this includes whistling when tea is ready. Although as she serves you it is advised that you sip slowly when you discover that Mrs Potts is an actual teapot! Reaching out your hand to politely greet her you may be scolded by the heat coming out of her sleeve, I mean arm, I mean spout! But the warmth and love you feel in the presence of her makes any space feel cosy and safe. Wendy Samantha Productions is proudly pleased as punch to introduce you to Madelyn Kidd who will grace the grand hall as Mrs Potts. With a natural on stage presence and the most alluring vocals, this young lady is set for grand things. When you hear her voice sing through those heritage rafters you will stop still and believe in magic.

When you turn into an elaborately ornate candlestick there really is a new meaning to the phrase "You light my fire!" and getting hotter each day may no longer be seen as a compliment! Trapped in a world where you love the extravagant, over the top, and enjoy the finer things in life, this maƮtre d' who loves love, romance and dancing just wants to entertain. Robbie Nicholson sets the stage alight with a passionate portrayal of Lumiere. His charm, wit, cheek and pizzazz will have you constantly wanting more as he heats up the grand hall - so much so that you may need to be doused at the finale with a bucket of water.

Many of us like routine and order, but turning into a ticking time machine is probably not something on anyone's wishlist! As every minute clocks on by, Cogsworth the prince's loyal head of the household transforms more into the mechanical mantel object that includes a pendulum and a winding handle! Desperate to keep things in check whilst hoping to be released from the magic that keeps the castle from becoming human again... is it all too late when Belle arrives? Wendy Samantha Productions is honoured to introduce you to this phenomenal performer Natasha Varrasso who's characterisation of the charming Cogsworth will have you believing that anything is possible. With precision and a perfect combination of comedic timing shared with counterpart Lumiere, make sure you don't miss our performances of Disney's Beauty and the Beast live on stage from 26th - 28th November at Montsalvat Castle.

LeFou, the fool is the bumbling sidekick every evil mastermind requires when they need a pick me up, a dirty job done, or something to kick! He idolises Gaston almost down to a worship, and will do anything to assist his villainous endeavours even if it means trying to twist the wrist of the woman he wants as his prize! Casey Brown's gifted stagecraft and swift skills bring the crazy and comedy out in this insanely nutty partner of crime, with amazing timing, humour and sheer delight.

Gaston is the making of many a woman's dream. A hero at war, this handsome fantasy struts about the town doing as he pleases with woman falling at his feet to his all brawn and unfortunately severely narrow minded brain! But as we learn quickly looks can be deceiving, and although the idea of being with such a manly man seems too good to be true - once he opens his mouth you may find you've landed in quite the nightmare! Johnny D'Arco is no stranger to the stage. The villian you amorously love to hate is brought to life in his stunning portrayal of this wildly wicked chauvinistic and objectifying character, something Mr D'Arco is far from! Feel the power he creates as he takes to the spotlight, and don't miss our performances of Disney's Beauty and the Beast live on stage from 26th - 28th November at Montsalvat Castle.

There's being undeniably handsome, and then being hideously monstrous! But if you happen to experience both one could imagine you probably have quite the story to tell. And whilst most of us look at a clock for time, magical processes can happen. So as the final rose petal falls, this just may be a moment you need to hold on to as you take your final breath... boy can life take us on a beast of a journey! Wendy Samantha Productions is thrilled to introduce you to our prince of performance, the one and only Dion Zapantis who brings a natural charisma and charm to the stage. His brilliant portrayal of the magnificent beast in all of his madness will have you on the edge of your grand hall seats, only to then be lulled and wooed by his serene vocals.
