SCOTTISH performers Darren Brownlie and Blythe Jandoo will star in this year’s Beauty and the Beast panto in Glasgow.

The two actors will take to the King’s Theatre's stage from Saturday, November 26, for five weeks only to join King’s panto veterans Elaine C Smith and Johnny Mac.

The theatre promises the show will be "a spellbinding spectacle filled with laughs, boos and hisses".

Darren will return to The King’s by popular demand following his debut in last year’s panto, Sleeping Beauty, as the happy-go-lucky and hilarious Dandini.

This year, he’ll play Belle’s genius brother Dougal, while Blythe joins the cast as Belle, having previously played Princess Jasmine in Aladdin at SEC Armadillo.

Darren’s previous theatre credits include performances at the National Theatre of Scotland, Tron Theatre and Òran Mór.

Blythe is currently performing at Pitlochry Festival Theatre in productions of Sunshine on Leith, Around the World in 80 Days and The Maggie Wall.

She previously performed at The London Coliseum, The London Palladium and The Royal Albert Hall.

Beauty and the Beast follows the beautiful Belle who finds herself transported to a cursed castle and held captive by a hideous beast.

To her surprise, the castle is full of magical characters placed under a spell by an evil enchantress.

The King’s Theatre Pantomime has been created by Crossroads Entertainment, the world’s biggest pantomime producer, since 2017 with Elaine C Smith and Johnny Mac anchors in creating the festive magic.

James Haworth, Theatre Director at The King’s, said: “I’m really excited to welcome Darren back to The King's and I give a warm welcome to Blythe who joins us for the first time.

"Those who saw last year’s panto will already know what a delight Elaine, Johnny and Darren are on stage. I also look forward to welcoming back our regular audience members and saying hello to those who are coming along for the first time.”
