It wouldn’t be the summer holidays without a Disney Junior show! With all the restrictions we’ve been living with, we know you’ll be thinking you want adventure in the great, wide, somewhere! And we have just the solution – Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. Join our talented cast and escape to the wonderful, musical world of the enchanted castle. We want you to feel Human Again, and Be Our Guest for this uplifting and inspiring story of Beauty and the Beast, a tale as old as time.
The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed to his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
Based on the original Broadway production that ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, and the Academy Award-winning motion picture, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. is a fantastic adaptation of the story of transformation and tolerance. Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. features some of the most popular songs ever written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice.
Don’t be a Stranger in the House - get yourself and the whānau along to Riverlea Theatre in January to this magical piece of theatre. There are lots of choices of sessions to suit but season dates are strictly limited. There is plenty of off-street parking. You must book ahead to assist with contact tracing and to ensure you don't miss out. Our school holiday productions are very popular.
