“Be – Our – Guest. Be our guest. Put our service to the test!…”  You know the tune – sing it with me!  Beauty and the Beast, part of PNC Broadway Across America, opens this week at the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts.  Through your Fund for the Arts dollars, Louisville Theatrical Association provided one hundred tickets to students and parents from Lincoln Elementary to experience this show with its larger-than-life teapot, wardrobe, and candelabra on Wednesday evening.  What an experience!

My favorite part of this show, as you will hear in the video below, is the animated napkin!  So tell me, what is your favorite character from Beauty and the Beast?

I am currently in Oklahoma City on the GLIDE trip learning their best practices but before I left I had the opportunity to visit with some talented and enthusiastic South Oldham High School students to talk about how theatre inspires them.  And what inspires them?  The PNC Broadway Series!
