"Our spring musical is always the village's biggest show of the year," said Resident Producer/Director Frann Carnivele. "We are very excited to present 'Beauty and the Beast' and invite everyone near and far to audition. This area is a wealth of musical theater talent and we look forward to assembling a phenomenal cast."
