The Canadian College of Performing Arts brings a beast to Oak Bay next theatre season with Disney’s The Beauty and the Beast

The Canadian College of Performing Arts brings a beast to Oak Bay next theatre season with  Disney’s The Beauty and the Beast.

“Last year we welcomed so many new patrons with a season that included Mary Poppins, The Great Gatsby, Into the Woods as well as special events like our Casino Royale 007 and New Works Festival,” says Darold Roles, artistic director. “We want to continue to raise the bar with another fantastic season and we have chosen productions that will put our emerging artists to the test and again deliver to our community.

The college will partner with other performing arts institutions. Company C, the Year III program, will perform in The Belfry Theatre’s This Little Light an original Christmas holiday musical. Also in December, CCPA students will feature in the Victoria Symphony’s Christmas Pops performances. In March, CCPA will perform with The Naden Band of the Royal Canadian Navy. The season will be capped off with a two week production The Beauty and The Beast.
