Central City High School is very excited to be presenting BEAUTY AND THE BEAST as the annual school musical March 23-25, 2018. It has been 11 years since this musical was last performed on the old elementary stage. We are very fortunate to be able to present this musical in our beautiful performing arts center with updated sound and lighting effects. One of the most-anticipated aspects of this production is that we were able to contract with Fourth Wall Scenic out of New York to bring in a set and costumes inspired from the Broadway show. The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed into his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
