Creative Edge presents Beauty and the Beast Jr.

Production on May 19 at Clarke Theatre in Mission

Abbotsford’s Creative Edge School of Arts hosts its third annual public performance on Friday, May 19.

The school presents Beauty and the Beast Jr. at Clarke Foundation Theatre in Mission for one show only, starting at 7 p.m.

The production, based on the classic Disney film and award-winning Broadway musical, features 25 Creative Edge theatre and dance students (ages nine to 16) who have been working on the play since September.

This classic fairy tale tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress.

If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed to his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.

A portion of the proceeds from the performance will go to Education Without Borders, which provides educational opportunities and facilities in disadvantaged regions of the world.

Tickets are $16 for adults and $10 for children. They can be purchased from Creative Edge School of Arts (# 300 – 3033 Immel St.) or at the door.

Call 604-855-3343 for tickets or information.
