The Roxy Theater in Newton is presenting the children's play "Beauty and the Beast" this weekend.
The 32-member cast is comprised entirely of children. Students from Newton County elementary and middle schools as well as Newton County Academy are getting a sneak peak at the show this week.
"We've had several children who have seen these plays when they came in from school and they have come back and auditioned. Some of these kids today that were in the play were in the audience last year," said Rachel Beeland, president of Newton Theater Company.
The theater will be presenting the play for the public Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are on sale for $10.00. You may call the theater at 601-683-3752 for more information.
