Beauty and the Beast

2-10 September 2022 at The Turner Centre Kerikeri

With a huge cast and crew, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast was a spectacular, magical and musical production performed in eight shows across two weeks. One of our shows was funded entirely by generous local businesses and individuals to enable children from around the region to attend who could otherwise not afford to go.

The ‘Tale as old as time’ included all the enchanted characters and memorable personalities from the well-known award-winning 1991 Disney animation – Belle and the Beast, Lumiere the candelbra and Cogsworth the clock, Mrs Potts the teapot and her son Chip the cup, Babette the feather duster and Gaston and crazy old Maurice the inventor.

A lot of hard work and fun went into creating the production, with vocal training, choreography and drama coaching front of stage, and set, props, costume production and stage management behind the scenes. Our engaged and appreciative audiences made it all worthwhile.

Here is a selection of photos from the shows, and credits appear underneath.
