EAC’s Youth Theatre bringing Beauty and the Beast to the stage next week

By Lori Dugan

Thatcher, Ariz—Eastern Arizona College’s Youth Theatre group will “Beauty and the Beast” on Nov. 2-6, 2021, at 7:30 p.m., in the EAC Activities Center-Lee Little Theatre.

Based on the smash-hit Disney feature film and dating back to a late 18th-century classic French fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast tells the story of Belle, a beautiful and intelligent young woman who feels out of place in her provincial French village.

When her father is imprisoned in a mysterious castle, Belle’s attempt to rescue him leads to her own capture by the Beast, a fearsome monster under the spell of a powerful enchantress. The only way for the Beast to become human again is to learn a valuable lesson: to love and to be loved in return. Can Belle teach him how to do so? Come and find out!

Cost of admission is $3 per person; full time students will be admitted free with EAC ID. Tickets are available through eventbrite.com or at www.eac.edu. Tickets will also be available at the door.
