Pittsville High School to present Beauty and the Beast Jr.
For Hub City Times
PITTSVILLE – Pittsville High School will feature Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr. March 12-14.
The musical is based on the 1994 Broadway production and Disney’s 1991 animated feature film. The cast contains high school students as well as middle school students, under the direction of Megan Schirger and Ty Natzke.
Beauty and the Beast Jr. tells the story of Belle (Emma Tolzmann), an adventurous young girl, and the Beast (Brad Neve), her “hideous captor” who is actually a young prince trapped under a spell. In order to break the spell, the Beast must learn to love another and earn her love in return, before time runs out.
With the help of the castle’s “enchanted staff,” including a loving teapot (Savanna Frederick), a charming candelabra (Jared Peters), and a nervous mantel clock (Emily Griffith), Belle and the Beast find a friendship and love that neither knew was possible.
The performance will take place at the Margaret Worchel Gronski Fine Arts Center, 5407 First Ave., Pittsville, March 12-14 at 7 p.m. There will also be a 2 p.m. matinee on March 14 and March 15.
Tickets are available at the door.
