BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
Liam Jones as Gaston, Zara McCann as Chip, Pip Carol as Lumiere, Kaitlin Nihill as Belle and Amy Jenkins as Mrs Potts in Beauty and the Beast.
Belle of stage set to enchant
It is one of the longest running
Broadway shows in history but Ickle
Pickle Productions musical Beauty
and the Beast is a lively adaptation of
the original fairytale.
Seventeen-year-old Kaitlin Nihill
said it had been many years since she
slipped into a Disney princess costume
but being cast as Belle in the
production had given her an excuse to
"play dress-ups again".
The young lead started with Ickle
Pickle aged seven, adores performing
and hopes to pursue a career in musical
theatre after graduating this year.
An ensemble cast of 35 adults and
children will fill the Belconnen
Theatre doing all the sing-along
numbers until Saturday, January 23.
"My favourite song, even though I
don t sing it, is Be our Guest," Kaitlin
"It s sung for Belle and one I
remember singing lots growing up
when Beauty and the Beast was one of
my favourite movies."
The musical production is based on
the French fairytale by Jeanne Marie
Leprince de Beaumont and was
adapted in a critically acclaimed 1991
While there are spells cast and
characters held prisoner it s a tale that
reminds audiences learning to love and
being loved has the power to unlock it
all.Playing the part of the Beast has
been great fun but also a vocal and
physical challenge for seasoned
performed Adam Salter.
The 32-year-old drama teacher is
soon to begin term teaching at
Gungahlin College but throughout the
school break has been perfecting his
"Having two toddlers helps, I get to
growl at them every so often," he
"There are some pretty big notes
that I have to hit as Beast. The biggest
notes in the biggest song come just as
I have had to shout at Kaitlin s
character to get out of the west wing."
It s the second time Salter has
played a part animal, part human
alongside Kaitlin after starring in
Seussical the Musical in 2014.
The father of two said wearing
clawed gloves and dense wigs wasn t
half as fun as working with a large
ensemble cast and seeing the many
talented young players within it shine.
