Abbotsford Children’s Theatre presents Beauty and the Beast

Production on Dec. 14 and 15 at Matsqui Centennial Auditorium

Abbotsford Children’s Theatre presents its production of Beauty and the Beast on Friday, Dec. 14 and Saturday, Dec. 15.

Show times are 7 p.m. Friday and 1 p.m. Saturday at Matsqui Centennial Auditorium, 32315 South Fraser Way.

The play is Vera Morris’ adaptation of the novel by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve. This version of the classic fairytale has a different spin from the version that most people know so well.

The story begins with a selfish prince who learns the hard way that you should always treat your elders kindly. His beastly actions lead to his transformation into a true beast.

Beauty’s mother plucks a rose she shouldn’t and runs into trouble with the Beast. The villains include Beauty’s two sisters and her brothers-in-law Greedo and Graspo.

There won’t be any talking teapots, but there will be a chatty lamp, feather duster, and broom.

Hungry wolves, naughty fairies, and an enchanted looking glass add to the action.

Miranda Martin said she is excited to be directing the production.

“All 41 of these talented young actors have worked so hard, and it is going to be a fantastic show. It’s a heartwarming and funny show for everyone in the family to enjoy,” she said.

Tickets are $12 in advance at The Reach Gallery Museum and Jazz-Ma-Tazz or online at abbotsfordchildrenstheatre.org.

Tickets at the door are $14.
