    Preps Dance School & Company -presents-

    “Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a young Prince lived in a shining castle. Although he had everything his heart desired, the Prince was spoiled, selfish, and unkind… One winter's night, an old beggar woman came to the castle and offered him a single rose in return for shelter from the bitter cold. Repulsed by her haggard appearance, the Prince sneered at the gift, and turned the old woman away. But she warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for Beauty is found within…” (Beauty & the Beast, 1991). 

    Belle, whose name means beauty, is seeking more of an adventurous life than she can find in her provincial town. Full of wonder of the great unknown, Belle regularly finds solitude in her books filled with “far off places, daring swordfights, magic spells, [and] a prince in disguise.” She finds herself exchanging her freedom for her Fathers’ to become a prisoner in an enchanted castle full of strange characters, including a despairing beast. Belle quickly realizes the adventure she has been seeking is within the castle walls she resides in. Could she ever truly love a beast?  

    So go ahead and reserve a seat for this tale as old as time for our 5th Annual June Production coming to the Athens Theatre.
