***Special Valentines Day Performance at 7p***
There once was a young girl named Beauty who didn’t seem to fit
in. Her nose was always stuck in a book and unlike her sisters; she wasn’t
looking for a Prince Charming to rescue her. What she wanted was adventure
and that’s just what she found. In order to settle her father’s
debt, she goes to live in a magical castle with a mysterious beast. What
she discovers is her true self, friendship and the meaning of love.
This adaptation, based on the original book by Jeanne-Marie LePrince
de Beaumont, is filled with charming musical numbers, delightful dancing,
endearing and amusing characters, wonder and magic. Guaranteed to thrill
and warm the hearts of children ages 3 to 103.
The Pre-show Workshop
In addition to the one hour and 15-minute musical, the audience receives a special
treat - interactive arts workshops prior to the performance. Here the
audience learns about the original book and how we turned it into a musical.
We discuss the themes of the show and how the arts bring literature to
life. Then the kids and their families make Beauty and Beast masks to take home
as a souvenir. Now when they watch the show, they are familiar with the
art forms represented in the production.
The whole program (pre-show workshop and actual show) is approximately
two hours long.
