The beloved story of Beauty and the Beast will come to life this Spring with Inland Pacific Ballet from April 12th through May 11th at Bridges Auditorium, the Lewis Family Playhouse and the Arcadia Performing Arts Center.

“We’ve brought together a wonderfully creative artistic team, and through their collaborative process a spectacular production of this well-known story is coming together. After months of work, sharing ideas, changing our minds, and delving deeper into the work, the story and the characters, everything is starting to fall into place.” Artistic Director, Victoria Koenig.

Shelby Whallon who began her training with IPB Academy in 2001, and was promoted at the age of 17 to the rank of Soloist from Company Apprentice will dance the role of Beauty. The Beast will be danced by Cameron Schwanz, who also performed with Ballet San Jose, Los Angeles Ballet and Texas Ballet Theatre.
