Director Pam Jorgensen says the cast has been in rehearsals since August 8, looking to put their own spin on this “tale as old as time.”
“It’s both easy and challenging. Everyone knows the show, or has seen the movie, so it’s easy to learn their parts,” Jorgensen said. “It’s challenging because everyone has an idea of how it should look, and we always want to put our own stamp on things.”

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is presented through special arrangements with Music Theater International/MTI.
