YPT's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST Extended Due to Popular Demand!
Young People's Theatre (YPT) is thrilled to announce that Beauty and the Beast will be held over to January 7 due to unprecedented demand!
Originally produced by Disney Theatrical Productions, YPT's take on this beloved classic opened on the Mainstage November 9 to acclaim from critics and audiences alike, for a run that was to end December 31st. But ticket sales have been breaking records at the theatre and the current pre-Holiday run is now poised to sell out.
This new block of tickets is ON SALE NOW for performances running from January 2 to 7 - a one-time-only extension. Tickets to Beauty and the Beast - or any show in YPT's 2017/18 Season - make a wonderful gift for the Holidays. Show tickets and gift certificates are available online at youngpeoplestheatre.ca or by calling 416.862.2222 x2.
Directed by Allen MacInnis, Beauty and the Beast features Damien Atkins, Aaron Ferguson, Neil Foster, Susan Henley, Phoebe Hu, Jacob MacInnis, Stewart Adam McKensy, Dale Miller, Andrew Prashad, Claire Rouleau, Emma Rudy, Zorana Sadiq, Joel Schaefer and Celine Tsai. The Creative Team includes Musical Director Diane Leah, Assistant Musical Director/Keyboard Jeannie Wyse, Musician/Percussion Jamie Drake, Choreographer Dayna Tekatch, Set Designer Sue LePage, Costume Designer Joanna Yu, Lighting Designer Jason Hand, Sound Designer Adam Harendorf, Assistant Director Liz Pounsett, Stage Manager KateSandeson, Assistant Stage Manager Emilie Aubin, and Apprentice Stage Manager Kate Hennigar.
