Audiences follow Beauty and a most endearing Beast through the world of manners, reading, sensitivity, gentility, and the pros and cons of washing behind your ears. The award-winning team of Chris DeCarlo and Evelyn Rudie have created an excitingly entertaining musical comedy version of the original French fantasy, molding the magic, romance, humor and grandeur of this timeless tale into a production which touches the hearts, and indeed, almost the fingertips, of audiences members 2 to 102, as they help Beauty discover that “it’s not what you look like, but what’s in your heart that counts†and find a magical happily-ever-after ending that leaves all who are young at heart breathless.

The bBeauty (Serena Dolinsky center) prepares for her sisters' weddings (Melissa Gentry left, Nicole Foti right)eautifully and authentically costumed production, populated with silly scatter-brained sisters, flamboyant suitor, spell-binding sorceress and gentle Papa, features Actors’ Repertory Theatre members Celeste Akiki, James Cooper, Serena Dolinsky and Melissa Gentry, with special guest appearances by Nicole Foti, Sarah Karpeles, and Alex Lercher as “Beast.†“A delightful Family Musical with a timeless message†(The Argonaut).
