Bonjour! Broadway’s eighth longest running production comes to McKinney this winter. The Award Winning McKinney Boyd Broadway Broncos proudly present Disney’s Beauty and the Beast this Thursday, Jan. 30, through Feb. 8 at the Boyd High School auditorium. All shows begin at 7 p.m.
Belle is a girl who is dissatisfied with life in a small provincial French town, constantly trying to fend off the misplaced “affections” of a conceited Gaston. The Beast is a prince who was placed under a spell because he could not love. A wrong turn taken by Maurice, Belle’s father, causes the two to meet.
And the rest as they say is history.
The Broadway Bronco’s annual Gala Night, Friday, Jan. 31, is a wonderful evening where guests enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres before the show, dessert during intermission and, of course, VIP seats to the performance. Gala Night tickets are $35 each. Standard price tickets are also available for that evening’s performance.
Also, Mrs. Potts will host a very special Tea Party on Saturday, Feb 8 from 10:30 a.m – 12 p.m. Join Belle and all your favorite characters over finger sandwiches, desserts, tea and cocoa. Tickets and more information can be found on www.broadwaybroncos.com.
