Photos: Onley Theatre Center Presents BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

This Broadway hit gets a fresh perspective with two performers who challenge our expectations of a Disney Princess and her Prince.

Resuming its tradition of big, family musicals for the holidays, Olney Theatre Center is presenting Disney's Beauty and the Beast (November 5, 2021 - January 2, 2022).

Check out photos below!

Directed by Marcia Milgrom Dodge, who wowed Olney audiences with her Helen Hayes Award-nominated production of Once, this Broadway hit gets a fresh perspective with two performers who challenge our expectations of a Disney Princess and her Prince.

Jade Jones, who in 2020 received two Helen Hayes Award nominations for her performances in School Girls, or the African Mean Girls Play (Round House Theatre) and Into the Woods (Ford's Theatre) stars as Belle. Evan Ruggiero co-stars as the Beast; after losing a leg to cancer in his teenage years, Ruggerio continued to pursue a dancing career and has gone on to become a Drama Desk-nominated performer and the self-proclaimed "Lord Pegleg."
