Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast”
Music by Alan Menken
Lyrics by Howard Ashman & Tim Rice
Book by Linda Woolverton

Having lived a life in selfishness, a young prince is cursed by a mysterious enchantress to having the appearance of a monstrous beast. His only hope is to learn to love a young woman and earn her love in return in order to redeem himself.

Years later, his chance shows itself when a young maiden named Belle offers to take her ill father’s place as his prisoner. With help from the castle’s enchanted staff, Belle learns to appreciate her captor and immediately falls in love with him.

Back in the village however, an unscrupulous hunter has his own plans for Belle.

There’s something about this story – and specifically the score, which was written 25 years ago- that is just magical, and that’s what still draws people in and is what makes this such a special experience. All eight of the film”s original songs were retained for the Broadway adaptation. Favorites are “Belle”, “Me”, “Is This Home”, “Gaston”,”Be My Guest”, “Human Again”, and “If I Can’t Love Her”

Beauty and the Beast will be directed by Robyn Metchik, who has had great success helping many students into professional theatrical careers. Choreography by Emmy Award Winner Suzy Miller, and Musical Director Mark Robertshaw.

Cabaret is an intimate form of theatrical entertainment featuring music, song, and storytelling that usually takes place in a restaurant or nightclub with seating generally less than 100.

Picture you and a friend enjoying delicious appetizers and beverages as a singer, accompanied by a jazz pianist, performs as though they were having a direct conversation with you. Some songs are vibrant and festive, others, poignant and heartwarming.

Cabaret song selections have traditionally been from the Great American songbook. (Think Cole Porter, George & Ira Gershwin, Harold Arlen etc.)

However, with so much wonderful new music available, we have opened our minds to exploring contemporary songs as well. We invite you to come and enjoy the renewed intrigue of the Cabaret World.

Ticket price includes light appetizers and dessert. Doors open at 4pm.

Beverages will be available for purchase.

There will be at least four performers, a pianist and bass player.

Details will be updated closer to the performance date.

* Judy Philbin – Vocalist
* Brett Mitchell – Pianist & Vocalist
* Julia Mitchell – Vocalist
* Diane Steinberg Lewis – Vocalist & Pianist
