Dufflebag Theatre's Beauty and the Beast

Westminster P.S. is proud host to Dufflebag Theatre’s 
Beauty & The Beast Thursday, May 4th. 2017

We are looking forward to seeing this year's billingual dramatization of Beauty and the Beast or "La belle et la bete" as part of our Arts Package for the year.   
"When a handsome but arrogant prince insults a mysterious old woman who appears at his door one rainy night, he finds himself magically transformed into a “horrible, nasty Beast”! The spell can only be broken when he learns to love another more than he loves himself. Fortunately, fate sends a bright and beautiful village girl, searching for her missing father in the forest, towards the hidden castle. Can the Beast learn his lesson and redeem himself before it’s too late? DuffleBag’s adaptation of this timeless classic is guaranteed to ring a Belle!"
Dufflebag Theatre, uses student participation to add to this funny and original adaptation of this classic fairy tale which is fun for all ages and meets many of our curriculum expectations for drama and literacy. Whether you know the fairy tale as a book, cartoon or live movie adaptation, the moral lessons of the story leave much to discuss and the mix of French and English also contributes to our Core French Curriculum and encourages the authentic use of the French language.
