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.

Written by Robin Hawdon & Marc Camoletti

Bernard is planning a romantic weekend at his charming converted French farmhouse with his side-dish, a Parisian model named Suzanne. The first order of business: get his wife, Jacqueline, on a train to see her mother. Second order of business: pick best friend Robert up from the train station because when you’re dating a model it’s hard to keep it a secret, so why bother…

In an effort to impress his paramour, Bernard has hired a Cordon Bleu cook to prepare a flawless dinner. Of course, even the best-laid plans often go awry. Which is what happens when Jacqueline decides to skip mother’s house after all. An evening of hilarious confusion ensues as each of the characters are forced to improvise at breakneck speed.

READ THE REVIEW

Full of heart and filled with lovable misfits, this musical is based on the cult hit film of the same name.

While spying on them at a Girls’ Night Out, a group of unemployed steelworkers from Buffalo sees how much their wives enjoy watching male strippers. Jealous, out of work and feeling emasculated, the men come up with a bold and unclothed way to make some quick cash. In preparing, they find themselves extremely exposed; not merely physically, but emotionally. As they conquer their fears, self-consciousness, and prejudices, the men come to discover that they’re stronger as a group, and the strength that they find in each other gives them the individual courage to “let it go.”

  • Directed by Michael Matthew Ferrell
  • Presenting Sponsor: Republic Bank
