Miranda Musical Society presents
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
19th – 23rd September – Sutherland Entertainment Centre
"Who could ever learn to love a beast?”
From the magic and wonder of Disney comes an event that brings to life ‘a tale as old as time’!
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is the story of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a prince trapped in a spell placed by 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. Set to enchant audiences of all ages – and with an Academy-Award-winning score – it is a classic tale of love, sacrifice, jealousy, revenge and redemption exploring an age-old theme: the true meaning of beauty.
Featuring the stunning Academy-Award winning musical score that made the animated film such a hit, Miranda Musical Societies production of Beauty and the Beast will be one not to miss.
Directed by Bob Peet, assisted by Garth Saville, with musical direction from Andy Peterson and choreography by Emma Paull and Nikki Bunch-Bozonie, Miranda’s Beauty and the Beast stars rising star Natasha Hoeberigs (recently seen as a semi-finalist on Australia’s Got Talent) as Belle, Andrew Symes as the Beast, Lachlan O’Brien as Gaston, Ramon Drew as Maurice, Tim Wotherspoon as Lumiere, Johnny Acosta as Cogsworth, Leigh Scott as Lefou, David Cartwright as Monsieur d’Arque, Margaret Short as Mrs Potts, Phoebe Wynne as Babette and Melissa Lammers as Madam de la Grande Bouche. Talented child actors Heath Cauchi and Daniel Simpson share the role of Chip, with Nicole Butler, Louise Jaques, Skye Roberts and Katie Glynn as the “Silly Girls”. Plus a huge all-singing, all-dancing adult and child ensemble that will make for a spectacular show!
The Miranda production will be a visual feast according to director Bob Peet.
"Our audiences of late have come to expect the equivalent of a movie on stage,” he said.
“The success of the Disney award winning cartoon feature places the bar very high. We therefore have to rise to the occasion. I believe we can do that – no expense has been spared to ensure Miranda audiences will enjoy a high standard of production
