The Barn Theatre stages Beauty and the Beast.

See a classic tale that’s just as delightful now as the first time around, when the Barn Theatre presents the Disney’s musical Beauty and the Beast July 31–Aug. 12.

For those of you who were fairy tale-deprived as children, Beauty and the Beast is the story of a selfish, unkind prince who is turned into a hideous beast by an enchantress. The only way for him to be human again is to learn to love someone other than himself and earn that person’s love in return. Enter lovely Belle, who sacrifices her own freedom to save her kooky dad.

Show times are 8 p.m. July 31–Aug. 4 and Aug. 7–11 and 5 p.m. Aug. 5 and 12 at the Barn, 13351 West M-96, Augusta. Ticket prices range from $39 to $48. For tickets or more information, call the box office at 731-4121 or visit barntheatreschool.org.
