Auditorium, 4564 West "A" Street, West Linn, April 15, 16, 17, 19, 20 at 7:30 pm with a matinee showing at 1:30 pm on April 17th.

This is the second time for the Middle School Musical to present "Beauty and The Beast", last time it was performed in 2006. This year 129, 7th
and 8th graders representing Athey Creek, Rosemont Ridge, Three Rivers Charter, and WoodMiddle School comprise the two complete casts.
They have been hard at work rehearsing since returning to school after Winter Break in January.

Based on the 1991 Award Winning Disney Classic, "a tale as old as time"… is filled with wonderful costumes and 15 incredible songs. Set in a
lovely French town, Belle, often wonders if there is "more than this provincial life". Gaston tries to no avail, to win Belle's affection. When
Belle's father, Maurice, becomes lost in the woods on his way to a faire, he seeks shelter in an "EnchantedCastle." The master of the castle is a
horrible beast that takes him captive. Belle must give up her freedom to save her father's life. She encounters the castle residence, including:
Lumiere, Cogsworth, Mrs. Potts and Chip, who like the Beast, have been transformed by a spell. Can Belle "tame" the Beast and undo the spell
in time?

Tickets are available at www.wlwvmsmusical.tix.com . Links to this site can be found on Athey Creek, Rosemont Ridge and WoodMiddle
School's websites. Cost is $7.50 (with a small surcharge for online ordering). Tickets will also be available at the box office before each
