The Brainy and Beautiful Belle yearns to escape her provincial life…and her brute of a suitor, Gaston. However, Belle gets more adventurous than she wanted when she becomes a captive in the Beast’s enchanted castle! Dancing flatware, menacing wolves, and singing furniture fill the stage with thrills in this beloved fairy tale about very different people finding strength in one another and learning how to love.
Williamstown Musical Theatre Company Inc’s junior production is a new opportunity for young performers. The development of a junior program is aimed at 8 – 19 year olds performers. WMTC will launch this program by presenting the company’s first ever junior musical production being Beauty and the Beast Jr this August.
The WMTC junior program will provide children and teens with high quality creative learning experiences in the theatre arts. A positive, supportive and fun environment will promote and develop self-respect, confidence, awareness, imagination, creativity, determination & social skills in young people. Cast members will also develop discipline, memorization techniques, motor skills, coordination, and many other crucial foundation skills through creative dramatics and, in doing so, enhance self-esteem, grace, and poise, both onstage and off.
WMTC wants to share its passion for musical theatre with children and teens so that they, in turn, can continue this creative tradition as teachers, performers and arts patrons for generations to come.
