Caledonia Performing Arts students present Beauty and the Beast Dec. 11

Cal drama invites you to be their guest

Caledonia Performing Arts students tell a fairy tale a bit lighter and a bit darker than the Disney movie version in Beauty and the Beast.

Caledonia Performing Arts students tell a fairy tale a little bit lighter, a bit darker and with an additional song than the Disney movie of the same name in Beauty and the Beast.

Costumes transform the students into the characters such as the Beast, Mrs. Potts, Chip, Lumiere, Cogsworth and even spoons, forks and knives.

Chantel Snyder is Belle, a young girl bored with her humdrum life, who ends up choosing to go to the beast’s castle in place of her father despite the beast’s anger.

The Beast is Brandon Krumm, in a costume expected to be the last one to be finished and with makeup that takes about 45 minutes to apply.

Zach Pflum is Gaston, who thinks Belle should be his no matter what she thinks; Steffen Sigwart is Lumiere; Ben Wiebe is Cogsworth, the clock; Ella Martindale is Mrs. Potts,, the tea pot Luane Dorais Fleming is Mme. de la Grande Bouche, the wardrobe; Anna Linton is Babette the feather duster and Anja Hanington is Chip as the characters who live as these objects when they are caught in the curse placed on the prince for his greed and selfishness after he turns away an old woman asking for shelter from the winter weather.

The Beast believes no one will love him and break the curse, until he meets Belle and she never imagines falling in love with seemingly nasty beast.

Caledonia Performing Arts presents Beauty and the Beast Dec. 11, 12, 13 at 8 p.m. at the REM Lee Theatre.

Tickets at Misty River Books.
