High school: Be our guest at ‘Beauty and the Beast’

February 6, 2013


Fine arts students from Granbury High School and Crossland Ninth Grade Center will present a “tale as old as time” when the musical “Beauty and the Beast” dishes out heart-warming entertainment Friday through Sunday.

Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday in the GHS Bagby-McMahan Performing Arts Center.

Tickets are on sale through choir students and cast members or by contacting the choir office at 817-408-4622. Admission is $10 for adults and $6 for students. Tickets will also be available at the door.

Based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature film, the stage version includes all of the classic songs.

The story will transport audiences 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 enthralled Broadway audiences for over 13 years.
