South Carolina Ballet returns with a newly staged, sumptuous production of this age-old fairy tale. (This is not the Disney version with dancing tea pots and candlesticks.) The tale follows the good-hearted Beauty who overlooks the Beast’s ugly appearance and grows to love him. Appropriate for children in grades 1 and up.
