Beauty and the Beast at the B Street Theatre

It was a warm and cozy afternoon with my kids at B Street Theatre’s intimate production of Beauty and the Beast. As we entered the lobby, families were gathering and the woman behind the quaint snack counter was assuring inquisitive children that the beast was just an actor with a mask and there was no need to be afraid. We anxiously awaited the start of one of our favorite stories as we found our seats and admired the detailed set. There are just a handful of rows that surround the low stage. The cushioned bench seats all have a great view and allow my little ones to cuddle up to me while we enjoy the show. I adore that!

Besides the style of the theatre, what sets B Street’s Family Series apart is the quality of acting. The small professional cast of six actors could not have been more engaging. The kids and I were pleasantly surprised that the show was so funny! We were constantly laughing out loud at the terrific mix of physical and witty humor!

David Pierini, the author and director, has re-told the classic French fairytale in a charming way.

A selfish and petty Prince, Tristan, and his faithful servant, Pascal, are cursed by a magical old Crone, setting off a series of events that find Belle trapped, a captive of the once handsome Prince, now a hideous and terrifying Beast. Condemned to his ugly visage unless he can marry, the Beast repeatedly asks Belle for her hand in marriage. Belle rebuffs him, but slowly his violent and intimidating facade melts away as the Beast and Belle form a friendship.

When the friendship is tested, by the appearance of Belle’s shallow sister, Magette, the Beast and Belle must learn to look beyond the surface and take the greatest leap of faith, the leap of love.

Developing my children’s appreciation of theatre is very important to me and to see them find excitement in going to see a play is very gratifying. We are lucky to have theatres in Sacramento that cater to children and the B Street Theatre is one of the best! Their very purpose is to create a memorable experience such as we had together Sunday afternoon that keeps them wanting more! The added bonus of seeing a play in B Street Theatre’s Family Series is that adults find it entertaining as well. I definitely recommend you have your own cozy afternoon, laughing together during one of the upcoming Beauty and the Beast weekend performances!

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Thanks

    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any solutions to help protect against content from being ripped off? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
