While growing up in the age of Disney Princesses, my heart was won over by Belle, the beloved starlet of Beauty and the Beast. (Maybe it was our mutual love of books.) Belle effortlessly captured the hearts of others as well, inspiring many musical performances of the romantic adventure tale. On Saturday, March 16 at 2 p.m., UCSB Arts & Lectures presents American Family Theater‘s own adaptation of Beauty and the Beast at UCSB’s Campbell Hall.
American Family Theater gives this classic magical favorite a fresh twist, including new songs such as “Imagine,” “The Wolf Dance” and “Start with One Small Step,” crafting a unique rendition of Belle’s, or Beauty’s, journey and realization that love can conquer even the beastliest of adversities.
Don’t miss this energy-filled tale of love and adventure! For tickets or more information, call 805/893-3535 or purchase them online here!
