Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast

August 16th and 17th at 7pm, August 18th at 2pm, World Under Wonder Playhouse will perform a new adaptation written by the Executive Director of World Under Wonder, Sean Edward Roberts, based on the French folktale by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve. With this Steampunk inspired musical interpretation, the characters’ vibrant costumes and choral unison should leave you excited for future work at WUW. Audience members will be welcomed into the message that beauty is deeper than skin.

Many different theatrical effects will be implemented in this show to make it immersive and exciting for the audience, including haze machines, projections, and LED lighting within costumes.

Before the show, audience members may enjoy vegan steampunk cupcakes. At intermission, audience members may take part in the steampunk costume contest for free tickets to future shows, and a silent steam punk art auction. Stay after the show to take photos with the cast.

This World Under Wonder production of Beauty and the Beast is being directed by WUW’s new Artistic Director Sam Maskell, who will be bringing this production to life with the help of Carol Cronce as Musical Director and Israel Cavanagh as choreographer. With a cast of 20+ and a tech crew of 15+, WUW is ready to bring you a production you won’t forget.
