Communique: New "Beauty & The Beast" Adaptation From UNCW Theater For Family Audiences

Christopher Marino
Beauty & the Beast at UNCW

Director Christopher Marino and actor Katherine Carr joined us to talk about a new adaptation of "Beauty & the Beast." UNCW Theatre presents the show, running one more weekend at UNCW's Mainstage Theatre: Friday, 11/18 & Saturday, 11/19 at 2:00pm &  7:00pm; Sunday 11/20 at 2:00pm. While the show is a bit scary (there's a beast, after all), it's appropriate for ages 6+. Don't expect Disney's version of the story-this is a brand new telling of the old tale. The show has received praise from Star News and Encore Magazine. Listen to Marino and Carr talk about the show above. 

Tickets are available by telephone at 910-962-3500, online, or at the door beginning one hour prior to showtime. The Mainstage Theatre is in UNCW's Cultural Arts Building on Randall Drive.
