Carson City children ages 5 and up are putting on their stage version of a selfish prince, turned beast, who must forever remain hideously cursed unless he can find redemption, in Wild Horse Children’s Theater’s musical “Beauty & the Beast, Jr.”
Based on the Academy Award winning animated feature, the stage version of “Disney’s Beauty & the Beast, Jr.” includes all of the songs from the film, as well as new songs written for the Broadway version.
The story follows a prince who’s turned into a beast by an enchantress. He must wait for true love in order to break the spell. His fate lies in the hands and heart of Belle, a frightened girl held captive by the beast.
“‘Beauty & the Beast’ has something for everyone. Talking clocks, dancing spoons, and at the centre, a beautiful love story. It’s a show the entire family can enjoy,” said Executive Director Carol Scott.
Show times are at 7 p.m. Fridays, June 5 and 12, and at 2 and 7 p.m. Saturdays, June 6 and 13, and at 2 p.m. Sundays, June 7 and 14, in the Bob Boldrick Theater at the Carson City Community Center, 851 E. William St.
Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors/students, $8 for ages 12 and under and free for children 3 and under. Tickets are available at www.wildhorsetheater.com.
