Step into the enchanted world of Broadway's modern classic, Disney's Beauty and the Beast, an international sensation that has played to over 35 million people worldwide in 13 countries. Based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature, the stage version includes all of the wonderful songs written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice. The original Broadway production ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

The classic story 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 into 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.

Fall Theater Productions; Dracula and Don't BlinkGo To Top of Page

"Dracula, a Musical Comedy"

October 20th, 21st, 22nd at 6:30 P.M.,  with a matinee on October 22nd at 2 P.M.

“Dracula: the Panto!”, written by Lucy and Thomas Cardwell with songs by Ben Asaykwee, is a family-friendly, musical, comedy-parody of the original Dracula tale. The story follows Jonathan Harker and his vampire-tempting bride, Mina, through their adventures of meeting, eluding and finally “doing in” Count Dracula.  

Not to be confused with the theatrical medium of mime, Panto is a musical-comedy theatrical production traditionally performed in the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia during the holidays. Panto plots are usually based upon awell-known fairy tales, with plenty of anachronistic jokes and business thrown into the mix to keep things fresh. Staged fights, sung narrative and gender role reversal are all elements of contemporary panto style.

AUDIENCE: Dracula the Panto is suitable for adults and children of all ages. Some special lighting effects, including strobes, are utilized. Similar to a melodrama, audience members are encourage to participate with catcalls, cheers, jeers and the like.

Rated PG for mild, suggestive humor. Recommended for all ages.
