'Beauty and the Beast' at SecondStory

Beauty and the Beast opens on Saturday, May 20, for two weekends only, running through Sunday, May 28. Performances are Saturdays and Sundays at 1 and 3 p.m. There will also be special evening performances on Friday and Saturday, May 26 and 27, at 7 p.m. Admission to Beauty and the Beast is $6 for all ages, with discounts available for groups of 20 or more.
