RHCR Theatre and Cost Cutters proudly present "Disney's Beauty and the Beast Junior" in the theatre's new event space located at 1200 2nd Avenue SE.
Based on the original Broadway production that ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, and the Academy Award-winning motion picture, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. is a fantastic adaptation of the story of transformation and tolerance. Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. features some of the most popular songs ever written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice.
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 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.
With many fun supporting roles allowing students to play objects inside the castle, this "tale as old as time" is filled with spectacular costume and set opportunities. This delightful cast of 30 young adults is sure to be a crowd pleaser!
RHCR's production will include *American Sign Language interpreters at the July 20th production. *Special seating is available for the Deaf Community.
RHCR is partnering Last Hope Animal Rescue and Critter Crusaders of Cedar Rapids for the community outreach portion of this production, our hope is to raise awareness about the challenges of caring for and adopting out homeless animals in our community. There will be information about Last Hope and Critter Crusaders at the show along with information on how you can get involved to help their cause and raise awareness. There will be two adoptable pets at every event!
