La Belle

by Imago Theatre

Grades 1-6

A magical Beauty and the Beast tale, set aboard a steamship circa 1920, told without the use of dialogue. From the company who brought us Frogz and ZooZoo, La Belle is the unlikely love story of the ship’s coal stoker, Sam, and one of the vacationers on the ship, Rose. Sam and Rose chance upon a friendship which blossoms into something more. This breathtaking performance features a steampunk-style set with moving gears, machines, and a backdrop of a whimsical ship, and large-scale puppetry.
