THIS YEAR’S PRODUCTION
Our 2018 summer program will culminate in nearly two-weeks of live, showcase performances of DISNEY’S BEAUTY AND THE BEAST JR. based on Disney’s award-winning animated film and stage play. With many fun and supporting roles allowing students to play objects inside the castle, this “tale as old as time” is filled with spectacular costume and set opportunities.
Based on the original Broadway production that ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, and the Academy Award-winning motion picture, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. is a fantastic adaptation of the story of transformation and tolerance. Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. features some of the most popular songs ever written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice.
Auditions for Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. will be held on Saturday, April 7 from 10:00am-12:30pm. *Children must prepare 30-60 seconds of a musical theater or Disney song of their choice. They can sing acapella or bring an instrumental track.
