The Darby School District is producing the musical “Be Our Guest” — Beauty and the Beast Jr., in the Darby Junior High Gym at 7 p.m., March 8 and 9.
The hour-long production is based on the 1994 Broadway production and Disney’s 1991 animated feature film and designed for middle-school aged performers.
The Darby Drama Department is producing the play directed by Alex Petrusaitis and has a 30-member cast.
“This will be a great opportunity to see a live performance in Darby Montana,” Petrusaitis said. “The kids and I have had a great time working on this production and we hope you all come out to watch.”
Beauty and the Beast JR. is about Belle, an adventurous and well-read young girl, and the Beast, her hideous captor who is actually a young prince trapped under a spell. To break the spell, the Beast must learn to love another and earn her love in return – before time runs out. With the help of the castle’s enchanted staff, including a loving teapot, a charming candelabra, and a nervous mantel clock, Belle and the Beast find a beautiful friendship and love that neither knew was possible. Patrons will enjoy familiar songs including “Be Our Guest” and “Belle.”
