Be Our Guest with the Adirondack Ballet Theater, as they present their adaption of the renowned children’s fairy tale classic “Beauty and the Beast”. As the resident dance company of the Charles Wood Theater, 25th silver anniversary season continues, students ages 4-18, and professional guest artists will take the stage and delight audiences in their envision of Princess Belle and the outcast Beast. Let our dancers and the music by Alan Menken take you through Belle’s journey as a young girl named Beauty traveling through a magical garden, woods and encountering a castle, within roams a hideous beast. Beauty is taken prisoner and the castle walls become her home. After many years Beauty has grown into a beautiful young lady, Princess Belle who frolics with the castle’s enchanted staff and grows to love the Beast. Our story of a prince and princess, a rose, the spell and a broken heart is truly a unique love story for all ages. Children are invited to come dressed up as their favorite prince or princess for the day, participate in a French folk dance during intermission, take a photo in our photo spot and enjoy the performance.
