Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, October 13th – 15th

The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress.

If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity. Possum Point Players Theatre, Georgetown.


Cinema Art Theater: Polina, October 13th – 19th

Polina is a drama about a young woman’s search for meaning through her art. Rigorously trained from an early age by a perfectionist instructor, Polina is a promising classical ballet dancer. She is just about to join the prestigious Bolshoi Ballet when she discovers contemporary dance, a revelation that throws everything into question on a profound level. Cinema Art Theater, Lewes.
