The Wentzville Christian Church proudly presents a community theater production of “Beauty and the Beast” on May 6, 7, and 8.
The Church will offer four performances of the musical:
- Friday, May 6 at 7 p.m.
- Saturday, May 7 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
- A special Mothers’ Day matinee Sunday, May 8 at 2 p.m.
Admission to the performances is free and open to the public. Seating is first come, first served. Doors open 30 minutes before each performance.
Wentzville Christian Church’s production features a talented cast of 35 drawn from the Church and surrounding area, along with a 17 piece orchestra (which includes members of the St. Charles Municipal Band).
Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” features memorable songs including “Belle”, “Gaston”, “Home”, “Be Our Guest”, “Human Again”, and of course “Beauty and the Beast”; along with lots of humor, dancing, great costumes and great sets.
In keeping with a theme within the “Beauty and the Beast” story, the Church is having a “Build the Library” promotion as well. Everyone coming to a performance is encouraged to bring a new or gently used book (child to teen appropriate) to donate. All books will be given to Shiloh Christian Children’s Ranch and Show-Me Christian Youth Home for use by their kids.
This is the 10th year the Church has produced a full-length Broadway musical to share with the community. WCC’s Arts for Life Theater Recognition Guild Award nominated production of “Meet Me In St. Louis” last year drew 1400-1500 people in three performances.
Wentzville Christian Church is located at 1507 Hwy. Z (1 mile south of I-70). For more information call 636-327-6622 or visit the Church website at wentzvillecc.org.
