Rehearsals, costume creation, and set design have been in full swing since early January. It’s finally almost show time for the Carrollton Cultural Arts Center’s rendition of Beauty and the Beast! Disney magic can be felt in every step of the process, as the cast of more than fifty actors, singers, and dancers prepare to thrill the audience with this very special performance.

Quotes from cast and crew reflect the excitement that is currently buzzing through the CCAC:

“It is a dream come true to be directing this magical fairy tale! I could not have wished for a better cast and crew. This is one not to miss. From show stopping dances by your favorite villains, to everyone's favorite love story of a beauty and her beast; this tale as old as time will be enchanting for the entire family.” Ginna Blair, Director

“If you thought Mary Poppins was a good example of the triple threat talent we have in West Georgia, you ain't seen nothing yet!” Megan Rogers, Choreographer

“Each production brings is own unique challenges. I am grateful for skilled carpenters, engineers, and creative minds (working) together to create the moment, and a family that doesn't seem to mind the mess I bring into the house, while doing a show.” Nan Stephens, Costume Design

"This show has a very special place in my heart, and I'm so thankful to be a part of this amazing, talented cast. I couldn't have asked for better people to work with! I'm constantly amazed by the talent surrounding me!" - Ally Murrah, Belle
