Beauty ‘is’ the beast at Alberni’s Capitol Theatre

Capitol Stages Youth Theatre Program’s yearend show brings to life the morality tale about a spoiled and beautiful but vain princess.

Toola and Loola have brought their fairy godmother membership cards and are prepared to use them to make Beauty’s life difficult.

Capitol Stages Youth Theatre Program’s yearend show brings to life this morality tale about a spoiled, beautiful princess who relies too much on her beauty.

Program director Teresa Drew and the students of the Stages program have been rehearsing this script written by D.M. Larson and adapted for Stages by Drew since January and are excited to show off all of their hard work.

Joining the Stages crew for this production is “Jane Doe”, a live band from Nanaimo. They will be playing all the music during the show and the kids are thrilled to have them with us.

The show is about a princess that was given incredible good looks by her fairy godmothers at her birth, but since then has used her beauty poorly. Her fairy godmothers then take her looks away to see how she fares.

Rehearsals have been running in weekly classes separated by age on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

“It is difficult to rehearse a show in four separate pieces,” says Drew “The actors don’t get the continuity of the script well.”

All the classes have been getting together for extra rehearsals.

Beauty IS a Beast plays Friday, June 15 and Saturday, June 16 at 7 p.m. nightly. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 each and are available at the door at the Capitol Theatre.
