EPT presents the ‘Tale as Old as Time’

By J Niswonger

Ennis Public Theatre’s successful K.I.D.S. program continues with the upcoming production of Beauty and the Beast Jr. Directed by James Pritchett (who also directed the popular Shrek The Musical), Beauty and the Beast Jr. promises Ennis audiences eight entertaining shows.

Set in a lovely French provincial town, the story follows the beautiful Belle as she searches for her dotty inventor father and finds enchantment, wonder, peril and love. How Belle tames the once proud Beast and helps him transform back into a handsome prince will hold audiences spellbound.

Familiar faces abound among the cast of 28 talented young actors, who range in ages from 6 to 17. Kaylyn Bell charmed theatergoers as Fiona in Shrek, and will be no less bewitching as Belle. Jacob Clinton, who stole the show as Lord Farquaad in Shrek, will play the egotistical Gaston, and Jason A. Rodgers will play the Beast.

EPT patrons will be entertained and inspired as this story of the redemptive and transformative power of love unfolds. Undoubtedly, many will leave the theatre humming or singing the familiar songs that made the animated classic so popular. The tale that taught us the value of inward beauty over outward appearance is a must-see this summer.
