Beauty and the Beast
Sacramento, CA 95814
Playwright Dave Pierini has customized B Street Theatre's Family Series version of Beauty and the Beast with a few Christmas and New Year's references. It's this year's “holiday surprise.” It's a charming show—geared to enchant kids, but sophisticated enough to keep adults happily onboard. This 90-minute production also has possibilities as a teen-date opportunity, as well as a show for grandparents and kids to see together. It's a love fable, well told. Sa, Su 1 & 4pm, and special holiday shows 12/26 & 12/27 1 & 4pm, 12/24 11am & 1pm. Through 12/29. $15-$20. B Street Theatre B3, 2727 B St.; (916) 443-5300; www.bstreettheatre.org.
