Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr by Broadway on Tour

We attended as guests of Broadway on Tour.

We recently had the pleasure of attending Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr, presented by Broadway on Tour, an Orange County youth theater.

Broadway on Tour (BOT) is a local non-profit organization that has been operating in Orange County for nearly thirty years. Their moto “children bringing theater to children” is quite impressive in two-fold. First, due to educational budget cuts, California school do not have means to fund any substantial education in the arts, and therefore there is often a lack of space for children to learn and display their talent in the community. Second, BOT provides affordable live theater to audiences of all ages, many of whom are youths and just gaining an introduction to a world of entertainment outside of TV, movies, and other “non-organic” storytelling.

The BOT productions are currently held at the historic and intimate Ebell Theater in Santa Ana. This small theater is a wonderful setting to experience an up close and personal performance.

They also loved the meet and greet after the show, during which they could meet any of the cast, and get autographs on their programs. Such a fun experience!

My littlest, who is a huge Belle fan, just loved being dressed up as the princess herself and meeting the Beast!

I love taking my girls to live performances of all kinds to widen their cultural horizons. We will definitely be returning to another BOT production in one of their upcoming performances including: A Sleeping Beauty’s Christmas, Seussical, and Alice in Wonderland Jr. Some of the shows include a pre-show tea, with which I know my girls, at least, will be thrilled!

For more information, and to order tickets, visit Broadway on Tour.

Broadway on Tour provided great memories and a fun time for all!
