— Be our guest! Christian Brother Academy will present Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” at 7 p.m. on Friday, April 4 and Saturday, April 5 at Nottingham High School.

The cast includes more than 60 students in grades 7 through 12. “Beauty and the Beast” is about an enchantress, disguised as an old beggar, who offers a young prince a rose in exchange for a night's shelter in his castle. The prince declines and as a result of his actions, the enchantress transforms him into a monstrous beast, his servants into household items, and his castle into a dark fortress. The enchantress gives him a magic mirror that enables him to view faraway events, along with the enchanted rose that she had offered, which will bloom until his 21st birthday. In order to break the curse, the prince must learn to love another and earn her love in return before the rose's petals have fallen off. If not, he will remain a beast permanently.
