Classic Story Comes To Woodbury


bbTheater fans should get ready to experience a “tale as old as time,” live on stage.

The Children’s Summer Magical Music & More series, sponsored by the Cultural and Performing Arts (CAPA) Division of the Town of Oyster Bay’s Department of Community & Youth Services, is bringing Beauty & the Beast to the Syosset-Woodbury Community Park in Woodbury on July 23 at 1:30 p.m.

“The next act in the Children’s Summer Magical Music & More is the Plaza Productions presentation of Beauty & the Beast where families can experience the magic of live musical theater for free,” said Councilman Anthony Macagnone. “A classic story like Beauty & The Beast performed by the Plaza Productions players is brought to the stage with wonderful talent that is sure to delight children and parents.”

Beauty & the Beast is the story of a prince who is transformed into a hideous beast as punishment for his selfish behavior and an adventurous young woman whom he imprisons in his castle.

In order to become human again, Beast must earn Belle’s love before it is too late.

The performance runs for one hour and is followed by a meet and greet with the cast, including Emma Harrington as Belle and Joseph Anthony as Beast.

Other performances include July 21 at 10:30 a.m. at Marjorie Post Park in Massapequa and 1:30 p.m. at Ellsworth W. Allen Town Park in Farmingdale; July 22 at 10:30 a.m. at Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park in Oyster Bay and 1:30 p.m. at Harry Tappen Beach in Glenwood Landing; and Plainview-Old Bethpage community park on Washington Avenue on July 23 at 10:30 a.m.
