For tickets or more information, call GVT\u2019s Box Office at 304-645-3838 or visit www.gvtheatre.org.\r\n\r\nDisney\u2019s classic story is about a heartless, young prince cursed to live as a beast unless true love can break the spell. With the help of enchanted servants Lumiere, Mrs. Potts, Chip and Cogsworth, will the Beast earn the love of Belle and save them all? The family-friendly favorite features the popular songs \u201cBe Our Guest,\u201d \u201cSomething There\u201d and \u201cBeauty and the Beast,\u201d and over 40 students.\r\n\r\nGVT\u2019s Education Program has opened up the world of theater to students, teaching them everything about building a production. Lights, sound, sets, costumes and much more are integral to every show, and it all happens behind the scenes.\r\n\r\nAshton Webb has been involved with GVT since she was in seventh grade. With three spring musicals already under her belt, the high school senior has worked backstage on \u201cSeussical Jr.\u201d and \u201cLes Mis\u00e9rables: School Edition.\u201d\r\n<h2>Webb has found her love of theater lies behind the scenes and not in the spotlight. She will now add \u201cDisney\u2019s Beauty and the Beast Jr.\u201d to her r\u00e9sum\u00e9.<\/h2>\r\n\u201cI absolutely love seeing a show develop. I love being a part of the backstage magic that stitches a show together. Although performing is a rush, my heart\u2019s in technical work,\u201d the senior said.\r\n\r\nWebb\u2019s experience helping the tech crew has taught her a great deal about what makes a good show. She will be putting all that education to work for \u201cDisney\u2019s Beauty and the Beast Jr.\u201d\r\n\r\n\u201cFor this show, I\u2019ll be (assistant) stage manager. Mainly, this means I\u2019ll help everything run as smoothly as possible. I\u2019ve learned a lot about being as helpful as possible backstage,\u201d Webb said. \u201cMy people skills have (gone) up tremendously since I did my first spring musical!\u201d\r\n\r\nWebb knows that her future lies in the technical side of theater and will be majoring in theater production after she graduates. The opportunities this young woman has been exposed to, and her confidence in her future, is an example of the impact GVT\u2019s Education Program has on the students who participate.\r\n\r\nGVT\u2019s production of \u201cDisney\u2019s Beauty and the Beast Jr.\u201d includes Stella Baldwin, Sophie Bowes, Addy Carr, Ella Carr, Charleigh Carter, Thomas Cornett, Christina Cullen, Sophia Gum, Maggie Hunter, Grace Johnson, Sarah Jones, Lillie King, Shaylen Lafferty, Kaelin Maro, Jacob Masters, Sarah Miller, Sydnee Miller, Emarya Montgomery, Kymberlyn Morgan, Stella Blue Neeley, Kylea Phillips, Jordan Reed, Lauren Rodgers, Khalil Samuels, Will Sarver, Sam Snyder, Sarah Stacy, Cora Taylor, Jameson Vance, Emma Vass, Ryan Vaughan, Kaley Vestal, Olivia Voltaggio, Zenya Walters, B\u2019Launa Westmoreland, Jed White, Isaiah Workman and Blaine Yates.
