Our next production: Beauty and the Beast.

Our 18th annual Play-in-the Park is the delightful Beauty and the Beast, written by David Tayler and directed by Cathy Leonard.

Beauty and the Beast continues KAT's tradition of bringing summer-time family entertainment to the northern suburbs through our annual production in Khandallah Park (wet weather venue: Cochran Hall, Cashmere Ave School).

Performances: 2.30 and 4.30 pm on Saturday and Sunday, 17, 18, 24 and 25 February

Open admission, so no bookings required.

Gold coin donations help us cover costs.

Beauty and the Beast is a fairy tale that was first published in France in 1740, and there have been many retellings since then. In David Tayler's version, premiered in 2013 by the Coasters Musical Theatre in Paraparaumu, the action is helped along by a determined fairy godmother and a flamboyant nasty witch. Belle is beautiful and perfect (of course), her sisters are delightfully daffy, and the Beast is as curmudgeonly as we expect him to be. There are also, oddly, some very funny chickens.

Musical numbers and opportunities for audience interaction abound, ensuring that this rollicking entertainment will be enjoyed by young and old alike.
