Fat Rascal brings its usual comedic flair to this brilliant musical parody that exposes the untold truth of Ursula The Sea Witch of The Little Mermaid fame.
Fat Rascal Theatre Company has created magic in its gender-swapped, musical parody of Beauty and the Beast.
On the one hand, that the VAULT Festival has expanded to over 300 shows running over eight weeks is fantastic news for the emerging theatremakers that it supports.
No opportunity to parody Disney’s Beauty & The Beast is passed up, from the wealth of French influences (the Camembert Art Fair; the under-rated star of the show – Bicyclette!) to James Ringer-Beck’s score which combines original numbers with deliciously close-to-the-bone rewrites of some familiar tunes.
“If you’d like to come in for some tea and a chatI’ve got a double-ended one and you can sit on that”… Who needs Olivier when you can have Eddie?! The latter may be a slightly lesser known award than the illustrious former, but it is arguably a more important one for upcoming talent.
