Oak Lawn Community High School will continue its tradition of excellence this fall with its production of Beauty and the Beast. Beauty and the Beast tells the story of a young prince, who is cursed by an enchantress because of the lack of love in his heart. He must find a girl who will love him in spite of his looks before the last petal of an enchanted rose falls. Director Billy Denton said, “As the song goes, this is a ‘tale as old as time.’ After seeing this show years ago, I knew it would be a staple of high school theater and I’m proud to be directing this production at OLCHS. From the songs to the costumes to the special effects, it’s going to be a great show and I know the students can’t wait to show the community.”
Performances will take place Thursday, October 25 through Saturday, October 27 at 7:00 p.m. A special children’s matinee will also take place on Saturday, October 27 at 2:00 p.m. where children will have the opportunity to be a part of the show and get their picture taken and receive autographs with Belle, the Beast, and the other enchanted objects. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Tickets can be purchased through the ticket hotline at 708-424-5200 ext. 5920.
