Beauty & The Beast - Pantomime Scripts
The story is narrated by a Minstrel, of Gilbert Cornwallis, a wealthy merchant who gambles away everything he owns. A kindly widow, Aggie Bending, allows him and his three beautiful daughters to stay rent-free in her cottage in the country. Aggies son, Simon, returns from soldiering with a small fortune and courts each of Gilberts daughters, Patience, Charity and Beauty. Gilbert sets off to London to sell his last possession, a locket. On the way he rests for the night at Castle Beastly. The Beast, although fearsome in appearance, is a kind man at heart, but is furious when Gilbert steals a rose for his favourite daughter, Beauty. He allows Gilbert to leave only if he brings him as a hostage the first living creature to greet him on his return home. Guess who that turns out to be?
