Step into the enchanted world of Disney, with a twist, in Beauty and the Beast, Jr., where child actors ages 5-18 step into the roles made famous by the animated movie. This show features original music from composers Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, plus new songs contributed by Tim Rice. You and your family will be transported to the heart of a quaint French town, where the beautiful and intelligent Belle yearns for something more than her provincial life. When her father becomes lost in the woods, 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 her father's life and, by taming the Beast, teaches him the meaning of love. This enchanting story is for the young and young-at-heart alike. Learn More

I had seen the original Broadway Play, and then the movie. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the Orchestra and the singing. The low point, although totally acceptable, was the dance. Well Done DMTC. You'll see be back for more.
Quotes & Highlights
“Stop what you’re doing right now and call for tickets to the Davis Musical Theatre Company’s amazing new production of Kander & Ebb’s Tony Award-winning Chicago. This is one of the best DMTC productions I’ve seen in a long time.” —_Davis Enterprise _
Directed by John Ewing, choreographed by Pamela Lourentzos, with music and lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb, and musical direction by Steve Isaacson and Jonathan Rothman, Chicago is based on actual scandalous headlines from 1924. Set during prohibition, the satirical musical re-tells the tale of two murderous females whose sensational stories created a media frenzy. The musical was originally a play written by a Chicago Tribune reporter, Maurine Dallas Watkins, who used her own news stories about two real-life femme fatales and turned them into a fictionalized accounting of the events. Today, the musical resonates with audiences more than ever as it foreshadowed America’s love affair with celebrity criminals and justice.
Recommended for mature audiences.
