The cast of "Beauty and the Beast" Junior is made up entirely of students in the Canyon Theatre Guild's STARS Workshop. The show will be performed this Friday and Saturday only.

"Beauty and the Beast" comes to life on stage at the Canyon Theatre Guild this weekend, featuring a talented and energetic cast of teens. The cast of this "junior" version is made up entirely of students in the Canyon Theatre Guild's STARS Workshop. These young performers are 13 to 17 years old and they have been meeting for four weeks, learning the craft of musical theatre performance.

Under the direction of Michael Davies and Leslie Berra these teens have been spending the summer learning the songs, choreography (by Rebecca Coombs), and dialogue, in preparation for four public performances at the end of the workshop. While some of the students may be appearing in a show for the first time, others have taken past workshops at the CTG and some have been featured in main stage productions. "Besides learning the craft of acting in a musical," said Director of Daytime Programs, Patti Finley, "our students are making friends, and gaining self-confidence. Many of them come back summer after summer for our workshops. It's wonderful to watch them grow as performers and as people."

The whole family will enjoy this summer entertainment. There are only four performances, at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Friday, July 10 and Sunday, July 11. Tickets are $15 for preferred VIP seating in the first four rows. General admission is $10 for adults and $8 for juniors and seniors. Reservations may be made through the Canyon Theatre Guild box office (661) 799-2702. These tickets are not part of the regular season tickets. The CTG is located at 24242 Main Street, in Old Town Newhall.
