Voorhees Theatre Company Invites Children to "Be Their Guests" For Enchanted Tea Party
Event Features Costumes, Snacks and Crafts with the Cast, then Backstage Access to Troupe's Production of Disney's Beauty and the Beast
By: Voorhees Theatre Company
The event will also feature Beauty and the Beast-themed arts and crafts, a costume pageant and, of course, tea with the cast. Beauty and the Beast is VTC's only all-ages production of the year, and features a cast of 55 from Camden, Burlington, Gloucester and Atlantic counties.
"This turns our matinee production into a wondrous experience for young audience members, something they'll always remember," says Robin Darrow, publicity chairperson for the Voorhees Theatre Company. "They can show off their own princess, prince or Halloween costumes, or challenge Gaston to an expectorating contest. Well, maybe not."
The Enchanted Tea Party kicks off at noon and concludes at 1:15 p.m. Admission is $10 and advance purchase is encouraged. The show begins at 2 p.m., with backstage tour for Enchanted Tea Party attendees immediately afterward. VTC also presents Beauty and the Beast at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 28th and 29th, and another matinee at 2 p.m. on Oct. 29th. Tickets for all performance are $15, and both show tickets and Enchanted Tea Party tickets are available in advance at www.voorheestheatre.org.
Tickets for the Enchanted Tea Party or Beauty and the Beast can also be purchased at the Voorhees Middle School Performing Arts Center box office from 1-5 p.m. Sundays and from 6-9 p.m. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Friday.
