Dawn Gray, Chairperson Burnham Excellent Entertainment Society
(BEES), told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Disney's 'Beauty and the
Beast' will be the first BEES show performed with a live orchestra,
so as we enter our 16th year, it has been a challenge to learn
something new for those of us 'old timers'."
"The show has also created a exciting time for our new and
younger members, many of whom this will be their first experience
of 'treading the boards'."
"So, if you love favourite songs such as 'Be Our Guest',
'Tale As Old As Time' and of course 'Beauty and the Beast', we
hope to see you at the Princess on November 20th or 21st to enjoy
