The Show Will Be Broadcast Live February 18 to March 14, 2021, Thursday to Sunday, at 8 pm
Fort Worth, Texas – February 10, 2021 – The talented players from The Luckenbooth Theatre in Fort Worth Design District have some excellent shows planned for their sixth season, the first of which will be a new stage adaption of Beauty and the Beast.
“Like most famous fairy tales that have been give the Hollywood treatment, it is hard to imagine that Beauty and the Beast had a life before the Disney version hit the big screen,” said Megan Hildebrand, Director and Playwright of the upcoming production.
“Although we love the Disney version, the original is a different beast indeed,” said Hildebrand. “We are honored to be able to tell the story in the way its original authors intended and, of course, to give it a Luckenbooth twist,” she added.
Leading the cast are Aaron Lancaster (Beast) and Allyson Ryan (Beauty). They are joined by Sydni Embry (The Enchantress), Sam Hurley (Ethan), Taylor Cordill (Lulu), Rebecca Nagle (Ms. Winnie), Abby Hill (Luna), Ellie Heitz (Ruth), Zeke Fayble (Timothy) and Fred Patterson (Papa). Nathan Layne is the production’s technical supervisor.
Beauty and the Beast tickets are $25 and may be purchased by visiting Luckenbooth Theatre’s online box office or by emailing Luckenbooththeatre@gmail.com. All the money generated by ticket sales will be used to support The Luckenbooth Theatre and to further its mission of bringing live theatre to the local community.
