THERE will be plenty of sharp one-liners and side-splitting moments when princely proponents of all things panto take to the stage this weekend.

Burneside Amateur Theatrical Society stages Ben Crocker's Beauty and the Beast at The Bryce from Friday until Sunday (January 5-7) and Wednesday to Saturday, January 10-13. Elisha Selby plays Rose, Tracey Howson is the Prince and Thomas Miles is in the guise of the Beast in another timeless tale that's given the special BATS' pantomime twist.
