Custom Program Description

Get ready to experience Beauty and the Beast in a new way with Stevens Puppets!  This timeless story about looking beyond the surface and beyond our differences to find the truth and dignity within each other, a strong and unselfish heroine sacrifices for her family and saves a man trapped in a prison of his own making.  Join Beauty on her journey from her good-natured acceptance of her family’s changing fortunes to her adventurous stay in the Beast’s castle as she teaches him to love himself and share that love with others.  Vibrantly colorful hand-painted scenery showcases hand-carved wooden marionettes who appear and disappear mystically through the magic mirror. Young and old alike will marvel at the science and technology which brings this magic to life. Support for this program is provided, in part, by the Arkansas Arts Council, an agency of the Department of Arkansas Heritage, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
