Beauty and the Beast Jr.

The beloved Disney classic is returning to Napier Operatic Society for the Napier Operatic Society Theatre School, with James Wright making his directorial debut. A tale as old as time, Beauty and the Beast has resonated with people of all ages for decades.

An arrogant young prince and his castle’s servants fall under the spell of a wicked enchantress, who turns him into the hideous Beast until he learns to love and be loved in return. The spirited, headstrong village girl Belle enters the Beast’s castle after he imprisons her father Maurice . With the help of his enchanted servants, including the matronly Mrs. Potts, Belle begins to draw the cold-hearted Beast out of his isolation.

Auditions are being held soon for those 6 – 16 years of age. If you’ve never been involved with theatre before, never fear, this could be your opportunity to join in on an exciting experience. Contact the Production Manager Sonya Aifai for more details!
