Beauty and the Beast fills the C-C PAC stage with music and spectacle

By on March 16, 2020

The classic story of the Beast who finds love and redemption will be brought to life in Churchville-Chili High School’s adaptation of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. The musical will be on stage in the school’s performing art center (C-C PAC) March 26 through 28 at 7 p.m., with a matinee for younger fans on March 29 at 2 p.m. Presale tickets are available at www.cccsd.org/finearts. 

With more than 70 talented students participating in cast, crew and orchestra pit, the spectacular scenery and costumes, plus professional-quality light and sound production in the beautiful C-C PAC theatre, Beauty and the Beast will be fun for the whole family.

Even more exciting for the youngest audience members will be a special invitation to come onstage and “Be Our Guest.” Little princesses are welcome to wear their best princess finery and take part in the Princess Parade during intermission. New and gently used books will also be collected to build Belle’s library.

Beauty and the Beast stars Trent Repass as the tragic Beast with Emily Sylvester as Belle, the beauty who helps him find forgiveness and love. Belle’s father, Maurice, is played by Carson Wohlers; the egotistical Gaston, by Elijah Weider. The characters who are perhaps the most fun, the enchanted servants, are portrayed by Jesse Ward, as Lumiere; Philip Greco, as Cogsworth; Natalie Faas, as Mrs. Potts; Delaney Carroll as Babette; and Katie Thomas as Madame de la Grande Bouche. Theatre newcomers Addison Gerhardt and Chloe Krenzer share the roles of Chip and Rug.

Tickets are available now for performances on March 26, 27, and 28 at 7 p.m. and a matinee on March 29 at 2 p.m. at https://www.showtix4u.com/event-details/36911. Presale adult tickets are $10, student and senior citizen tickets are $8. All tickets are $15 at the Box Office on the day of the show. The C-C PAC is located at 5786 Buffalo Road, Churchville.
