Experience one of the most spellbinding musicals on stage this festive season.

We don't know about you, but nothing beats heading to the theatre during wintertime to make you feel all warm, cosy and festive. This year, Dublin's Bord Gais Energy Theatre greets you with a "Bonjour!" as the 'Beauty and the Beast' winter run is already underway for those in the mood for something extra special.

Be our guest at one of the most enchanting musical experiences to hit Dublin, with promises of eye-watering costumes, set designs and special effects and enough singing and dancing to bring the dark and spooky mansion come to life.

The romantic tale as old as time, based on the 1991 animated Disney film, has proven to be one of the most popular stage productions ever. Since its debut in 1994, it quickly became the highest-grossing live-action film musical of all time (but has since been overtaken by another stellar production that was in Dublin earlier this year - 'The Lion King'). Mind you, it still remains among the top 10 longest-running shows in Broadway history.

Join some of your favourite Disney characters such as Belle, Beast, Gaston, Lumière, Cogsworth, Mrs. Potts and little ol' Chip for a magical night at the theatre, with state-of-the-art theatrical wizardry and a few surprises along the way too (including Sam Bailey from 'The X-Factor' playing Mrs Potts!).

Lovers of the original animated film will be happy to know that the iconic Oscar-winning score and songs such as 'Be Our Guest' and 'Beauty and the Beast' feature during the performance, so don't be surprised if your fellow guests become so captivated with the performance that they begin to song along!

Tickets for 'Beauty and the Beast' at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre start at €51 and can be purchased directly from Ticketmaster (here). The performance runs from now until Sunday, January 8, 2023.
