A Flintshire theatre has moved its popular pantomime to the big screen after it was hit by covid restrictions.

Following Welsh Government's changes to restrictions before Christmas, Mold's Theatr Clwyd had to make the difficult decision to cancel the rest of the run of this year's pantomime Beauty and The Beast.

The final performance on Christmas Eve was performed to a sell-out audience, a very emotional experience for cast, crew, and staff.

In a heartfelt video from artistic director Tamara Harvey and executive director Liam Evans-Ford, posted to the venue's social media, they explained that the show could not continue with the reintroduction of social distancing.

Since the announcement the venue has been working hard at providing other options for audiences to see the show.

From Tuesday, January 4 until Saturday, January 8, 2022, customers will be able to start the New Year with a bang, viewing the pre-recorded show in the Anthony Hopkins Theatre on the cinema screen.

The screenings will be socially distanced and following all Welsh Government's Covid guidelines.

Tickets are £10 with the option of a £15 supporter ticket*. Booking is available at Theatr Clwyd's website www.theatrclwyd.com or by calling the box office on 01352 344101.

* Supporter ticket prices enable the venue to provide super low-cost accessible ticket prices to the community.
