Event Notes


Once Upon a Time

The classic story of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed into his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity. A "tale as old as time" for all ages.

Directed by Terri Heffron and Betsy Willis.
