on the young audience faces as theproduction came to life.
My experience as a whole was a great one. My favoritepart of the production was the joy on the faces of the actors and actresses.You could see and feel the excitement and pure enjoyment of presenting thispresentation to the audience. I have been to several presentations in my lifetimeand I have never felt such a sense of happiness in the air like I did withBeauty and the Beast at The Media Theater of Performing Art.
. The youngchildren in the audience were dressed in the yellow Belle dress and the air inthe auditorium was wonderful. The Young age of the cast was a wonderful touch.Beauty and the Beast reach out to a young audience. The ages made the productionhave an enhanced fairytale feeling.
When I decided to go to this particularproduction and realized it was going to be put on by a cast of 18 and younger, Ididn’t expect it to be well executed and thought it would have an elementaryfeeling to it, but I was very wrong and felt as if the ages chosen for thisDisney production was an excellent decision. I believe it would be hard toportray the innocence needed for many of the characters of Beauty and the Beastif you chose anyone other than children or young teens. My reasoning forchoosing Beauty and the Beast was my love for fairytales and Disney movies ingeneral. Beauty and the Beast was always my favorite Disney movie growing up thecharacters were my favorite. My son is a big fan of Disney’s movies as well.
Infact, my husband and I took him to Disney where we all enjoy our time there.Beauty and the Beast remind me of the magical movie Disney’s itself play at theMagical Kingdom in Disney Land. I love the way it takes you to a differentworld and you suddenly forget all that’s going on in your life.
I felt great duringthis presentation and went to that fairytale world with the excellent singing,wonderful props, fun and creative costumes. The costumes in the Beauty and TheBeast was more fictional and well designed by the producer during the show andthere was a distinction to which you could not be confused to which characteris playing which role. were. Each cast member was right on target as theytransformed into the character they were portraying, all the way to thedifferent accents, which was surprising to me as it seems it would be verydifficult. I am satisfied with the choice I made to go to this particularproduction it was well beyond my expectations and very enjoyable. I wouldattend this play again and again. I look forward to attending another productioncast.
I have attended many other shows, but I thinkthis particular play was definitely a perfect holiday treat for the audiences.
