Providence Students to Stage ‘Beauty and the Beast’

The tale is as old as time, but Providence School's performance of Disney favorite Beauty and the Beast will be fresh and new when it is staged May 18-20 at La Cumbre Middle School, 2255 Modoc Road, Santa Barbara.

The age-old tale of Beauty and the Beast tells of an arrogant, young prince, cursed by an enchantress to turn into a Beast (Eric Smith) until the prince can learn to love and be loved in return.

Smart, headstrong and beautiful, a local village girl, Belle (Jolie Richardson), stumbles across the Beast's castle as she searches for her missing father, Maurice (Chase Avery). She trades her life for her father’s and becomes the Beast’s prisoner.

Over time and with the help of the Beast’s enchanted servants — featuring Blake LaBrie as Lumiere, Jordan Short as Cogsworth, and Cassi Hansen as Mrs. Potts — Belle begins to soften the Beast’s heart and teach him how to love.

Featuring the songs “Be Our Guest,” “Something There,” “If I Can’t Love Her,” as well as the title number, Beauty and the Beast showcases Providence’s talented young performers.

There are three performances: 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and a 3 p.m. Sunday matinée. Tickets may be bought online at http://www.providencesb.org/arts/beautyandthebeast/. Seats are $22.50 preferred and $12.50 general. All seating is reserved.

The box office opens 45 minutes before each show. Doors open 20 minutes before the show. This show is suitable for all ages.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
