* The young cast of Beauty and the Beast which takes to the stage from next Thursday.
The society’s junior section has chosen the musical based on the well-known Disney film as its 24th annual show because of its strong story and rousing songs, which include Home, Belle, Be Our Guest and Human Again.
It will run from Thursday-Saturday, February 7-9, with doors open each evening at 7pm.
Deirdre Smith, who is co-producer with Bethan Williams, said: “This is a top musical show delivered with great verve by the Young ‘Uns.
“We have 40-plus young performers have an average age of 12, and a range of six to 18.
“There are some wonderful performances from the principals, Belle, Beast, Lumiere, Maurice, the boorish Gaston, who seeks to marry Belle, and Lefou, his side-kick, Lumiere, Cogsworth, Mrs Potts and Chip, Babette and Madame de la Grand Bouche.
“This production is a must for the diary of anyone who enjoys good music, a splendidly trained and enthusiastic chorus, good acting and dancing by young people and a vibrant and participative show.”
Producers are Tessa Orton Jones and Emma-Jo Newton, and musical director is Elen Mair Roberts.
