Beauty and the Beast: A Huge Success!

Over a year ago when Beauty and the Beast director Sheila Adkins, former chairman James Janzen and I spoke of what kind of musical we'd put on in the spring of 2010 there was no question in our minds that it had to be bigger than anything we'd done before. We wanted to draw the community of Three Hills in as never before, all the while advertising to a wider audience beyond our own town. Little did we realize the work that it would take to put this on but in the end the many hours spent dreaming, building sets, scrounging for donations and materials, rehearsing, advertising, and performing all paid off in a great show of support from our town and surrounding area. People came from surrounding towns and hamlets, even so far as Calgary, Drumheller, Olds, and Edmonton to witness a truly community theatre production. I say "truly community" because we couldn't have done it without the many business, sponsors and volunteers who helped make our 10 show run plus an encore showing a huge success. We had about 1500 people attend, many who came to see it 2, 3,or 4 times. Thank you and we hope to see around for our next production, the 2nd Annual Bard's Backyard featuring Shakespeare's 12th Night.
