The Silver Center for the Arts at Plymouth State University hosts professional actors from the Papermill Theatre in Lincoln throughout the summer, to present their repertoire of children’s stories adapted for the stage.
Performances are 2 p.m. each Thursday. All seats (including babes in arms) are $5 and shows usually sell out.
The production for August 4 will be Beauty and the Beast. A merchant’s daughter, Belle, is taken into the forest by a Beast to be a prisoner in his castle. Belle discovers the true identity of the Beast, and comes to realize that beauty is only skin deep.
Other shows this summer will be:
August 11 The Pied Piper
August 18 Cinderella
