Now Playing: Beauty and the Beast
JUNE 8 – SEPT 14
An arrogant prince and a goodhearted Beauty cross paths and a classic story is born. The Columbia Marionette Theatre is proud to present their latest production, Beauty & the Beast, opening Saturday, January 12th. Cursed to expose his inner darkness for all to see, a vain prince is transformed into a monstrous beast, with a spell that can only be unlocked by the love of a goodhearted maiden.
Generations of children have been fascinated by the story of the girl named Beauty, who grows to love a fearsome beast by learning to see through his outward appearance to the kindness and intelligence within. CMT brings the story to life through the unique art of puppetry.
Performances are every Saturday at 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., and the third Monday of every month at 10:00 a.m. Tickets are $5 each and are available online or at the door.
*Field trips for groups may be available during the week and can be arranged via phone call or email. Prices may vary according to group size.
DINO TALES JUNE 8 – SEPT 14
Your imagination takes you back to prehistoric times; to a land of volcanoes, huge insects, and dinosaurs! Watch as a brother and sister parasaur first hatch and venture away from their nest. They encounter many creatures, big and small, and find friends in surprising places. But will they make it back to their nest safely?
This is an original CMT story, featuring some of our largest and most colorful marionettes ever!
