For the live performance critique, I decided to
attend Disneys’ Beauty and the Beast at “the Media Theater Performing of the
Arts”. Disney’s Beauty and the Beast play took place at the box office of The
Media Theater location. The venue of the theater was so beautiful I have never
seen anything like it before. The way the theater was designed, was magical as
if you were experiencing the real Disney moment.


“pre-show” of the play was well organized. The staff member treated people very
well with a warm welcome in the venue of the box office. At the entrance door,
they welcome you with postcard of the Disney’s Beauty and the Beast performing
show. There were quite a number of people in line buying the ticket at the box
office booth. It’s was convenient for me to get in very easy for me to get in
because I didn’t have to wait in line for several minutes because I had already
pay for my ticket in advance. Once at the front of the show right before you
enter, there are other shows advertised so that people can see what is being
shown on the theater schedule. In front of the ticket booth the staff member
was asking people about if it was a first time for them attending the show. If
not, there were telling them about the overall history of their theater as well
as how many shows they present to the audience per week. I was so in love the
theater especially the way they welcome you and make you comfortable before the
show begins. Once inside the Venue, you can see the nice set up of the scene
well organized with beautiful light and designed. Everything was set to almost
Diseney’s standard.

The show was
well depicted as well each character played a specific role in the play. The
play ultimately center around a character called Belle, a beautiful girl who is
symbolized by “Beauty”, and the Beast, who is really a prince stuck under the curse
of a magician. The Beast in the cast need to  learn how to love and be loved so that the spell
will end.

Overall, I would say I have very much enjoyed the cast of the
whole show of Beauty and the Beast that I attended last week at The Media
Theater for the Performing Art. Beauty and the Beast is a great Disney movie
and I remember I used to watch it over and over again. I was very happy with
the way the characters performed the play. When I was watching the show, automatically
I tough of a fairytale. The performer of the show made the Beauty and the Beast
role a special show and they all work tirelessly together to make the show more
excitement and enjoyable. I loved the way they brought excitement on the scene
and everyone in the audience have loved it. Over all I had a nice experience
watching the show. The part I enjoyed the most was the fact how joyful the character
was on the scene. Everyone was so excited and they did a very good job
presenting to the audience.


When it comes to the characters, I think everyone played
their part well. You could see and feel the excitement and enjoyment of presenting
this show to the audience. Alanna J. Smith who played Belle is a young strong, smart, and
independent woman. Her character really showed the true beauty of the Beauty
and the Beast. Garret Jay Yoder who portray the Beast did not really show the strong and affectionate
love toward Alanna in the play. He was not convincing showing the true love
toward Alanna. I think he played a little soft, maybe because of the love he
had toward Alanna. But he interacts well with the beauty. Bob Stineman who
represents Gaston in the play is absolutely the complete opposite of the Beast.
He is self-centered and not very happy. I think he does not attract more
attention in the play because of his anger.




 I have seen many
other play but I have never felt such a sense of happiness like I did with
Beauty and the Beast at The Media Theater of Performing Art.


 It was quite
impressing to see the young children in the audience were dressed in the yellow
Belle dress and the atmosphere in the auditorium was magnificent. The Young age
of the cast was a brilliant touch. Beauty and the Beast reach out to a young
audience. The younger ages in the play have an enhanced fairytale feeling. When
I decided to go to this particular production and realized it was going to be
put on by a cast of 11 and younger, I didn’t expect it to be well played and
thought it would have an fundamental feeling to it, but I was very wrong and
felt as if the ages chosen for this Disney production was an excellent
decision. I believe it would be hard to portray the innocence needed for many
of the characters of Beauty and the Beast if you chose anyone other than
children or young teens. My reasoning for choosing Beauty and the Beast was my
love for fairytales and Disney movies in general. Beauty and the Beast was
always my favorite Disney movie growing up the characters were my favorite. My
son is a big fan of Disney’s movies as well. In fact, my husband and I took him
to Disney where we all enjoy our time there. Beauty and the Beast remind me of
the magical movie Disney’s itself play at the Magical Kingdom in Disney Land. I
love the way it takes you to a different world and you suddenly forget all
that’s going on in your life. It was a good feeling during the show and it felt
like on a fairytale world with the excellent vocal, well sustains, fun and original
creative costumes. The costumes in the Beauty and The Beast was more fictional
and well designed by the producer during the show and there was a distinction
to which you could not be confused to which character is playing which role.
were. Each cast member was right on target as they transformed into the
character they were portraying, all the way to the different accents, which was
surprising to me as it seems it would be very difficult. I am satisfied with the
choice I made to go to this particular production it was well beyond my
expectations and very enjoyable. I would attend this play again and again. I
look forward to attending another production cast.           

I have attended many other shows, but I think
this particular play was definitely a perfect holiday treat for the audience.
