UNCW Theatre Presents Beauty and The Beast

"Two fairies, three humans, and only one song...  

                                             ...A decidedly different take on an old tale."

The theft of a single rose has monstrous consequences for Beauty and her father. Because this is no ordinary rose...and this is no ordinary fairytale. Narrated by a pair of mischievous fairies, a very helpful Rabbit, and a Thoughtsnatcher machine, this timeless story of love is sure to surprise, delight and enchant. Originally produced at Royal National Theatre in London, this version was devised and adapted from the French original "La Belle et la Bête". There will be singing but not the kind you might expect. Suitable for children and parents alike, this production will have something for everyone.

Beauty and the Beast will run: at 7 p.m. Friday November 11, 2 pm and 7 pm Saturday November 12, 2 pm & 7 pm Sunday November 13, 7 pm Friday November 18, 2 pm and 7 pm Saturday November 19 and 2 pm Sunday Novemvber 20 on the Mainstage Theatre in the UNCW Cultural Arts Building. Tickets are $15 for members of the general public, $12 for seniors, UNCW employees, and alum, and $6 for students and children (sales tax included.) They are available at the Kenan Box Office on campus by calling 910.962.3500 or online at http://uncw.edu/arts/tickets.html.
