This week Hayling Youngstars present a family treat adapted from a cartoon favourite
Based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Junior is a musical version of the children’s classic.
The show is set in a French provincial town where the young girl Belle lives with her father – a dotty inventor.
Belle yearns for something more than her provincial life but when her father fails to return home one day she discovers he is being held captive in an old castle by a cruel, unfeeling prince who has transformed into a horrible beast.
In order to break the spell cast on him and all the servants of the castle, the Beast must learn to love another and earn her love before the last petal falls from the enchanted rose.
Belle trades her freedom for her father’s and so the fantastical love story begins.
Beauty and the Beast plays at Hayling College, Church Road, Hayling from Thursday, May 29 until Saturday, May 31 with matinee performances every day at 2.30pm and evening showings at 7pm on Friday and Saturday. Performances run for just more than an hour.
Tickets cost £8 and are available from The Life Boat Inn – call (023) 9246 3624, Tibbles Florist or alternatively visit haylingmusical.com.
