Villa Victoria Academy will present Disney’s family-friendly Beauty and the Beast musical on Friday, March 23 and Saturday, March 24 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, March 25 at 3 p.m. in the Villa Theatre, located at 376 West Upper Ferry Road in Ewing, New Jersey.
Beauty and the Beast will feature senior Olivia Quinn of Warminster, PA as Belle, freshman Macey Bartels of Allentown as LeFou, junior Meghan DiMercurio of East Windsor as Lumiere, senior Emilia Siracusa of Hamilton as Madame de la Grande Bouche, junior Bettina Villegas of Bordentown as Mrs. Potts and junior Samantha Dotson of Washington Crossing, PA as Maurice. Andrew Reiman will be playing the part of Gaston and Aidan Rice will be playing the part of the Beast.
In this “tale as old as time” an arrogant young prince and his castle’s servants fall under the spell of a wicked enchantress who turns him into the hideous Beast until he learns to love and be loved in return. The spirited, headstrong village girl Belle enters the Beast’s castle after he imprisons her father Maurice. With the help of his enchanted servants, including the matronly Mrs. Potts, Belle begins to draw the cold-hearted Beast out of his isolation.
