WAC musical concert slated for May 3

By Press Reports

On Friday, May 3, The Weir Attendance Center cast will present the
musical production of “The Enchantment of Beauty of the Beast” in the
Weir Attendance Center auditorium.
“The Enchantment of Beauty and the Beast” is a delightful adaptation
of the French fairy tale about a selfish prince who is changed by a
sorceress into an ugly beast in order to learn a lesson about
unselfishness and love. It’s a wonderful story for the entire family,
bursting with zany characters, swordfights, and music.
After the sorceress places a curse on the prince, he is destined to
be a “beast” until he learns to love. Years later, a poor widow
plucks a forbidden rose. Though he sentences the woman to death,
Beast allows her to say good-bye to her family. At the widow’s farm,
we meet her two distasteful daughters and greedy sons-in-law. The
four of them hear her “insane” story and don’t believe her. But her
third daughter, Beauty, goes to the Beast and promises to stay if her
mother’s life is spared. The Beast falls in love with Beauty. She is
like a princess to him. Unfortunately, the two sons-in-law slink into
the eerie castle hoping to filch the treasure. In a hilarious and
thrilling scene there a battle with the Beast! But could Beauty ever
love Beast?
Crystal Ashford is “Beauty” & Larrel Jobe is “The Beast”
