‘Beauty and the Beast’ coming to NAHS stage
New Albany High School will be presenting its annual school musical Feb. 10-12. This year’s musical is “Beauty and the Beast.”
The familiar Disney tale is the story of a beautiful, intelligent young woman who resolves to rescue her father who is imprisoned in a castle held by the Beast. The Beast was once human until falling under a spell and can only return to human form if he learns to love and be loved. The play is populated by a large cast of enchanted characters and everyone waits to see if the spell will be lifted before the Beast is condemned to that form forever.
The music is by Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice and book by Linda Woolverton.
Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 10, and Saturday, Feb. 11, with a matinee at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 12. Tickets are $10 for reserved seats and $8 for general admission. This is a change from information published this past week.
