The family-friendly event will be held at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium and is expected to include characters like Belle, the Prince, Lumiére, and Mrs. Potts.

“We are thrilled to provide our child and adult audiences alike with the nostalgic magic that Beauty and the Beast so amazingly embraces,” said Paul Damian, President and CEO of the CPO, in a release.

“There’s nothing quite like this timeless, heartwarming tale bring brought to life with the accompaniment of a live orchestra.”

These performances are only the first of many musical collaborations expected from CPO, with Greatest Classical Hits and a musical retelling of Peter and the Wolf planned for later this year.
