With the generous support of the Mallory Family Fine Arts Fund, Christ Episcopal Church proudly presents their 2018 spring musical, "Beauty and the Beast". Jason Collins returns to our stage to direct a remarkably talented cast in this charming musical adaptation of the classic French fairy tale. Fans of the story will thrill at the magical transformation that takes place on stage amongst the imaginative characters and fantastical dancing castle objects. Audiences will cheer for Belle, the headstrong heroine, as she learns to look beyond the physical appearance of the Beast and discovers a flawed, but virtuous, kindred heart.
