|These are the stories we are working on for this week's newspaper:|
The age-old tale of Beauty and the Beast is coming to Feather River College this spring. The Disney musical is the classic tale of Belle and her self-sacrifice to save her father, the inventor Maurice.
A prince, who has taken the form of the Beast as a result of a spell placed upon him because of his own cruelty and selfishness, must find a way to Belle’s heart with the help of his enchanted household. Singing and dancing ensues as the story unfolds.
There are numerous parts available, including Belle, The Beast, Maurice, Gaston (the overblown “hunter”), LeFou (Gaston’s sidekick), Lumiere, Cogsworth, Mrs. Potts, Chip (the young son of Mrs. Potts), D’Arque and many more characters.
Auditions are set for Jan. 14, 16, 21 and 23 in the Quincy High School cafeteria from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Those auditioning should be prepared to do a reading plus sing a song of their choosing or one from the show. A pianist will be available. Dancers are welcome.
The show will run May 7 – 11 at the Town Hall Theatre. For more information or to ask questions, call Terry Gallagher at 283-3418.
