A Disney classic will grace the stage at Manteca High’s Mulvihill Theatre for a three-day run, beginning this week.

The Manteca High Thespians invite you to be their guest as they perform “Beauty and the Beast.” There are four opportunities to see the production:

• Thursday, 7 p.m.

• Friday, 7 p.m.

• And Saturday, 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Megan Gonzales and Michael Huckaby will star in the stage adaption. 

Gonzales will play Belle, whose beauty is complimented by her brains and sense of self. She longs for a life of adventure, a world beyond her village, but eventually falls for a cursed soul stowed away in a castle. 

Huckaby will star as the protagonist, a hot-tempered, cold-hearted prince turned into the Beast by Enchantress. She casts a spell on the entire castle, a curse that transforms even the servants into household objects.

The Saturday matinee will feature a princess row. Children that come dressed as Belle will be allowed to sit in the designated area. Seating in the princess row is limited. 

Tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for students and children.
