“Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr.”
May 23-June 1. Presented by Christian Youth Theater. “Be our guest” and step into the enchanted world. Featuring songs from the Academy Award-winning animated feature, this stage version includes music by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice. Audiences will be transported to the heart of a quaint French town, where Belle, a beautiful and intelligent young woman, yearns for something more than her provincial life. When her father Maurice becomes lost in the woods on the way to present his latest invention at a local fair, he seeks shelter in an old castle but is soon taken captive by the master of the house, a horrible Beast. Belle surrenders her freedom to save his life and, by taming the Beast, teaches him the meaning of love. Shows are Fridays at 7 p.m., Saturdays at 3 and 7 p.m. and June 1 at 3 p.m. Visit www.cytspokane.com.
