World Under Wonder to perform Steampunk “Beauty and the Beast”

ASCUTNEY, Vt. – On Aug. 16 and 17 at 7 p.m. and Aug. 18 at 2 p.m., World Under Wonder Playhouse will perform a new adaptation of “Beauty and the Beast,” written by the executive director Sean Edward Roberts and based on the French folktale by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve. With this Steampunk inspired musical interpretation, the characters’ vibrant costumes and choral unison should leave you excited for future work at WUW. Audience members will be welcomed into the message that beauty is deeper than skin.

Many different theatrical effects will be implemented in this show to make it immersive and exciting for the audience, including haze machines, projections, and LED lighting within costumes.

Before the show, audience members may enjoy vegan Steampunk cupcakes. At intermission, audience members may take part in the Steampunk costume contest for free tickets to future shows and a silent Steampunk art auction. Stay after the show to take photos with the cast.

This World Under Wonder production of “Beauty and the Beast” is being directed by WUW’s new artistic director Sam Maskell who will be bringing this production to life with the help of Carol Cronce as musical director and Israel Cavanagh as choreographer. With a cast of 20-plus and a tech crew of 15-plus, WUW is ready to bring you a production you won’t forget.
