Premiere Night and Party
This is a special premiere performance night. It is “adults only” admission. Each $40 ticket includes a one-hour preview party, hot and cold hors d’oeuvres, wine and cheese selections, and bottled water. Food and wine will also be offered during intermission.
With generous support from the Mallory Family Fine Arts Fund, Christ Episcopal Church proudly presents the 2018 spring musical, Beauty and the Beast. Music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice, and book by Linda Woolverton.
Jason Collins returns to direct a remarkably talented cast in this charming musical adaptation of the classic French fairy tale. Fans of the story will thrill at the magical transformation that takes place on stage amongst the imaginative characters and fantastical dancing objects. Audiences will cheer for Belle, the headstrong heroine, as she learns to look beyond the physical appearance of the Beast and discovers a flawed, but virtuous, kindred heart.
