Beauty and the Beast Jr opens SATURDAY!

Starting this Saturday Trail Arts Council and Triple Threat Experience is proud to present BEAUTY AND THE BEAST JR at The Bailey Theatre.  

 

Since 2014 Triple Threat Experience has been teaching youth ages 8-18 the ins and outs of singing, dancing and acting.  They have produced Seussical Jr, Alice in Wonderland Jr, Shrek The Musical Jr, and most recently Elf The Musical Jr.

After successfully completing four 12-week programs during the school-year, Triple Threat approached Trail & District Arts Council about creating a summer program where youth would gain real-life theatre experience rehearsing daily in the Bailey theatre for three weeks in preparation for putting on a full-scale musical.  Your Triple Threat Instructors this year are Nadine Tremblay (musical director), Juliana Marko (director) and Maddie Kinghorn (choreographer).

Students have been working non-stop since July 3rd memorizing lines, learning choreography and singing their hearts out to bring this well-known musical to life.

A title known the world over, Disney's Beauty and The Beast JR. is based on the original Broadway production that ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards. Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. is a fantastic adaptation of the story of transformation and tolerance featuring 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.

The classic story tells 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 to 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.

 

There will be 4 performances at The Charles Bailey Theatre.  Saturday July 21st 7pm, Sunday July 22nd 3pm & 7pm and Monday July 23rd 7pm.  Tickets available at thebailey.ca
