If you’re as much a musical junkie and Disney fanatic as I am, there should be nothing holding you back from seeing a tale as old as time being be retold yet again this month at Idaho’s oldest performing arts organization. This performance closely follows the original, as Belle, played by Adelaide Turnage, is held hostage by the Beast, who’s really a prince under the spell of an enchantress. Only when he learns love can he be freed. All the internationally loved songs from “Be Our Guest” to “Something There” are included, as well as a few new pieces by Alan Menken and Tim Rice. As the local actors dive into their roles, viewers can expect a fresh face on the old classic.
June 13-30; Wed-Sat at 7:30 pm, Sun at 2 pm • $27-$49 • Kroc Center • 1765 W. Golf Course Rd. • cdasummertheatre.com
