A TALE as old as time will be brought to life in Lochgelly this summer by Nardone's Academy Of Performing Arts. 

The Lochgelly-based theatre group will be putting on their very own production of the Broadway musical, Beauty and the Beast in June. 

Based on the Disney animated film, the show will follow the story of Belle as she falls in love with the Beast and releases him from his curse. 

Sharing the news of their latest show on Facebook, Nardone's Academy Of Performing Arts said: "Beauty and the Beast is a highly anticipated production, arriving in just 16 short weeks!

"The demand for tickets has been extraordinary, with sales soaring at the box office. It is with great pride that we announce our musical production is poised to be nothing short of exceptional."

The show will run in Lochgelly Centre from Wednesday, June 5 until Saturday, June 8 at 7.30pm with a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm. 

Tickets can be purchased now through the OnFife website.
