Step into the enchanted world of Broadway's modern classic, Disney's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST! Based on the Academy-Award winning animated feature, the stage version includes all of the wonderful songs written 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. Maruice'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 enthralled Broadway audiences for over 13 years. This "tale as old as time" is filled with spectacular costume and set opportunities, or even more simply staged, Disney's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST offers a great opportunity to bring your entire community together for family theatre at its best.

Founded by Ronald K. Brown in 1985, Evidence Dance Company blends traditional African dance with contemporary choreography and spoken word. Drawing inspiration from the history, traditions and dance forms of Latin America, the Caribbean and Africa, Brown's work is more than dance; it's kinetic storytelling. Theater, text and music-from classical to hip-hop-also weave through Brown's culturally significant and emotionally rich works. Brown has choreographed for many of the major American dance companies, including Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and Jennifer Muller/The Works. In 2012, Brown's choreography for the Broadway revival of Porgy and Bess won the Astaire Award for "Outstanding Choreography for a Broadway Musical."

Lincoln High School
2/27-3/1/2014
If you thought you knew the story of 'The Princess and The Pea,' you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken's love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn't the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.Music by Mary Rodgers; Book by Jay Thompson & Dean Fuller & Marshall Barer; Lyrics by Marshall Barer
