Disney’s Beauty and the Beast

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.

The Pied Piper

The people of Hamlin, overrun with rats, offer a bag of gold to anyone who can get rid of the rats. A piper offers to do the job, and enchants the rats by playing his magical flute luring them into a mirage of cheese, in which they disappear forever. The citizens, disappointed that all he did was play a tune, offer only pocket change. The angered piper exacts revenge by playing a new tune that leads all of Hamlin’s children out of town. The Pied Piper is an original production recommended for ages 4 and up
