A tale as old as time: Beauty and the Beast at Carnival City

Feb 27, 2019, Author: Hello Joburg

The story of Belle is a classic story of true love that prevails in the end. A must-see for all ages!

Carnival City’s Mardi Gras Theatre provides the stage for the O.A.K Youth Theatre’s captivating musical production, Beauty and the Beast in March 2019. The show, starring talented performers from the greater Gauteng area, tells a classic story of true love and features beautiful costumes by Hollywood Costumes, and songs that will have audiences tapping their feet. Beauty and the Beast, which enjoyed a highly successful run at the Atterbury Theatre in 2018, will be staged at the Mardi Gras Theatre from 21 to 24 March 2019.


“We are delighted to partner with O.A.K Youth Theatre to bring this wonderfully produced show to Ekurhuleni during the upcoming school holidays. It’s definitely a show for all ages,” says Michelle Smith, Marketing Manager at Carnival City.

True love really does prevail in the end in this heart- warming production as we get to know Belle, a young lady from a small town, where everybody thinks she is odd because she’s infatuated by books and obsessed with reading. The gregarious Gaston sets his eyes on the beautiful Belle and decides that she will be his future bride, much to the delight of Gaston’s sidekick, Le Fou. The Beast captures Belle’s father, Maurice when he tries to pick Belle a beautiful rose in a garden, not knowing that he is in fact on the Beast’s property.


While on a quest to find her father, Belle happens to discover the Beast’s castle. What Belle encounters at the castle is somewhat confusing, as she has never before met a talking teapot, a grumpy clock, a boisterous feather duster and a charming candlestick. However, with a very nifty plan, she swaps places with her father and finds herself to be the grumpy and discontented Beast’s prisoner.

The show is filled with beautiful costumes, captivating performances and songs that will have every audience member bopping along to the catchy musical numbers.


O.A.K. Youth Theatre is back to bring family entertainment to audiences of all ages these holidays and provides the perfect family activity that both children’s and adults will thoroughly enjoy!
