Now Playing Onstage in New Orleans - Week of 3/16/2014 DISNEY'S BEAUTY AND THE BEAST JR
Step into the enchanted world of Disney's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST JR. Featuring songs from the Academy-Award winning animated feature, this stage version includes music by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice.  Your audiences will be transported to the heart of provincial life in a lovely French town. When Maurice becomes lost in the woods on the way to the fair, he seeks shelter in an old castle, but the master of the castle is a horrible beast that takes him captive. Maurice's daughter, Belle, must then give up her freedom to save his life. Belle's taming of the unfortunate Beast and his ultimate transformation back into a handsome prince is a beloved fairy tale about very different people finding strength in one another and learning how to love. This "tale as old as time" is filled with spectacular costume and set opportunities. Even more simply staged, Disney's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST JR. offers students a great introduction to musical theatre, using familiar songs and characters to guide them through their production.

Now Playing Onstage in New Orleans - Week of 3/16/2014 BREMNER DUTHIE'S LE CONTINENTALE!
Mid City Theatre
A night out in Paris at Mid-City Theatre: A Concert Cabaret of French Chanson Bremner sings songs of Paris and 'La France Profonde' - Jacques Brel, Edith Piaf, Charles Trenet and so many more. Songs of romance, nostalgia, humour, love and revenge. "When Bremner sings, his voice is like a big, dark, sultry room -full of emotive and expressive possibilities. Even when he sings in languages other than English, the passion and subtext come startlingly alive." (Georgia Straight, Canada) Bremner lived for 10 years in Paris before moving to New Orleans and in this Paris Soiree he sings his favourite Chanson from the City of Lights. In Paris, Bremner lived in an artist's garret in Montmartre, sang in smoky jazz bars, toured France with a big band orchestra, performed the songs of Jacques Brel in wooden barge moored at the edge of the Seine, and generally fell in love with French music and language, and their passion for living. He brings all this to Mid-City Theatre on March 20th for their month-long celebration of Cabaret.
