Adlib Theatre’s young troupe will perform the folklorish love story Beauty and the Beast in the April school holiday period.
The Berwick-based cast – aged 9 to 22 – will perform the wild tale of whether a heroine could find true love and break a spell that had cursed a castle for many years.
It will inspire an audience to “walk away humming the tunes to these new and outstanding songs”, says theatre spokeswoman Michelle Robertson.
Children in the audience can meet and get autographs from their favourite characters after the show, she said.
The theatre’s directors, Donna and Peter Dowler, created an original script, score and lyrics for the musical.
“We are very proud of the bright, modern musicals we create at Adlib Theatre and ensure that every production has an original and exciting adaptation concept behind it, that contemporary audiences will love,” Ms Dowler said.
The show is at Starbright Theatre, Berwick Fields Primary School, Berwick on 9-13 April.
