By Lori Dugan/EAC

THATCHER — Eastern Arizona College’s Youth Theatre group will perform “Beauty and the Beast” on Nov. 2-6, 2021, at 7:30 p.m., in the EAC Activities Center-Lee Little Theatre.

Based on the smash-hit Disney feature film and dating back to a late 18th-century classic French fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast tells the story of Belle, a beautiful and intelligent young woman who feels out of place in her provincial French village.

When her father is imprisoned in a mysterious castle, Belle’s attempt to rescue him leads to her own capture by the Beast, a fearsome monster under the spell of a powerful enchantress. The only way for the Beast to become human again is to learn a valuable lesson: to love and to be loved in return. Can Belle teach him how to do so? Come and find out!

The cost of admission is $3 per person; full-time students will be admitted free with an EAC ID. Tickets are available through Eventbrite.com or at www.eac.edu.
