A grimy engine room of a steamship becomes an enchanted theatrical playground where Beauty and the Beast comes to life with song, drama, puppetry, shadow theatre and a multitude of special effects. Imago’s long-awaited spectacle will dazzle your eyes, enchant your heart and intrigue your imagination. This performance is recommended for ages 4 and older. The company’s trademark style – which combines masks, dance and slapstick with witty social commentary on the human condition – is the direct result of more than 30 years of study, development and practice. Not easily pigeon-holed, Imago has repeatedly proven unique in its ability to create popular family-oriented fare that’s as highly regarded as its critically acclaimed (and ambitious) productions for adults. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12.50 for seniors, and $10 for students/youths. Visit miac.mercyhurst.edu or call the box office at 814-824-3000 for tickets.
