60 young performers present Disney’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’ at Scranton Cultural Center April 20-22
From a press release:
The Scranton Cultural Center at the Masonic Temple’s Youth Theatre Program will showcase nearly 60 young performers in its upcoming production of Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast.” Featuring students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade, the production will run on Friday, April 20 through Sunday, April 22 on the SCC’s historic main stage.
“We couldn’t be more excited to bring this classic story to life on our stage,” Director and SCC Arts & Education Outreach Manager Camille Reinecke said.
“This is one of our largest groups of talented young performers, and their hard work and dedication has been incredible.”
The classic story tells the story of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed into his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
Performances in the Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Theatre are scheduled for April 20 at 7 p.m., April 21 at 11 a.m., and April 22 at 2 p.m. Doors will open a half hour prior to curtain. There will be a cash bar and light fare for sale.
Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the Fidelity Bank Box Office at the SCC (420 N. Washington Ave., Scranton) in person, by calling 570-344-1111, or via all Ticketmaster outlets. For additional information and a full schedule of events, visit sccmt.org.
