Clinton Co. Kids & Company: ‘Be our guest this weekend’


Clinton County Kids and Company is inviting the community to its presentation of Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast JR” this weekend.

The show is directed by Ken Lydy, with music direction by Gina Sheldon, choreography by Ami Gallagher-Filip, and costumes and make-up by Tara Lydy.

Beauty and the Beast JR. tells the story of Belle, an adventurous young girl, and the Beast, her hideous captor who is actually a young prince trapped under a spell. In order to break the spell, the Beast must learn to love another and earn her love in return – before time runs out. With the help of the castle’s enchanted staff, including a loving teapot, a charming candelabra, and a nervous mantel clock, Belle and the Beast find a beautiful friendship and love that neither knew was possible. Beauty and the Beast JR. features classic songs from the Academy Award®-winning film score such as “Be Our Guest” and “Belle,” as well as original songs from the 1994 Tony®-nominated Broadway musical.
