Lighthouse Theatre presents classic children’s musical Beauty and the Beast in Chilliwack

Beauty and the Beast runs May 25-27 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre

Lighthouse Theatre will bring children’s musical Beauty and the Beast to life May 25-27 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.

The troupe makes up the theatre program of Fraser Valley’s Heritage Christian Online School. It’s the first of its kind among distributed learning schools in the province.

Beauty and the Beast is one of Disney’s best accomplishments at heralding the themes of trust, redemption, love, true beauty and family.

Prince Adam, who is deeply entrenched in his narcissistic path, finds himself sentenced to life as a Beast, which outwardly reveals the ugliness of his selfish ways, until one day he is redeemed through the love of another. This transforming love heals his heart first followed by his beastly appearance, thus restoring him back to a Prince once more.

Lighthouse Theatre is an enthusiastic group of 45 home-educated students, ranging from Grades 2 to 12, who love to sing, act and dance. The group is committed to a high calibre of distinction, from the acting, singing and choreography to the costumes and impressive set design.

Beauty and the Beast runs May 25-27 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre. Show times: May 25, 26, and 27 at 7 p.m., plus a matinee at 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 27.

Tickets $15, and available at the Centre Box Office, by phone at 604-391-SHOW (7469), or online at chilliwackculturalcentre.ca.
