Lincoln Middle School will present Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” on Friday, April 20th and Saturday, April 21st. Both performances will be at 7 p.m. in the Busse Gym. An abridged version of the musical will also be performed for Lincoln students on April 19th at 2:15p.m. Lincoln Middle School is located at 700 W. Lincoln Street, Mount Prospect.

Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a tale as old as time. The musical is about a young, heartless prince who is changed into an ugly beast by a sorceress. He and his enchanted staff remain locked in his castle until he can break the spell by finding true love. Belle is a beautiful girl who seeks adventure through reading. She is a misfit, but the handsome, but conceited, Gaston, is enthralled with her beauty and wants to marry her. Belle’s father is an inventor, and on his way to a science fair, he gets lost and finds himself imprisoned by the Beast. Belle offers to take her father’s place as the Beast’s prisoner, but is soon catered to by the enchanted staff in the castle that plots for the Beast and Belle to fall in love. Despite Gaston’s attempts to save Belle, in the end, the spell is broken, and love unites the prince and Belle forever.

Lincoln’s annual school musical is directed by Karrie DeBlauw with production assistance from Karen Gadow and Ron Godby. The production includes over thirty student cast members who auditioned for roles in late fall and a stage crew of student and parent volunteers who help change the sets and run the lighting and sound for the shows. The cast, crew and parent volunteers design, build and paint the sets under the guidance of Mrs. BeBlauw and two student directors. Musical accompaniment is provided by Prospect High School band members, parents and Lincoln Principal Dr. Don Angelaccio. Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” will be performed on April 20th and April 21st at 7 p.m. and is open to the public. Tickets are available at the door for $5 for adults and $3 for children from 6:15-7 p.m.
