Beauty and the Beast
Be Our Guest July 14, 15, 18-22, 25-29
Trollwood Performing Arts School is excited to announce its 2017 Mainstage Musical production, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast! For the second time in Trollwood history, but the first time on the Bluestem stage, we invite you to “Be Our Guest” for this classically enchanted love story. This summer will mark twelve years since Trollwood last brought this magical tale to life. The 2005 version of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast was one for the history books as it held the record for the largest attended Mainstage Musical in Trollwood history, until this past summer when The Little Mermaid shattered that record. With the arrival of the 25th anniversary of the Academy Award-winning Disney animated film, we felt there was no better time to celebrate this fantastic musical and visually re-imagine it for today’s audiences.
The classic story tells the tale of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed into his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
Cast auditions will be held February 25-28 at Bluestem Center for the Arts. Auditions for our live pit orchestra will be held March 6-12 also at Bluestem Center for the Arts. Students who are currently enrolled in grades 8-12 are eligible to audition. Students interested in auditioning must call our offices to sign up for an audition session. Rehearsals will begin June 1 with performances July 13-15; 18-22; and 25-29.

We look forward to another magical summer of fun, creativity, and showcasing our amazingly talented students in what is sure to be another unforgettable production!
