New Canaan High School Theatre is now offering ticket sales online.

Alan Sneath, visual and performing arts director, said, "We are moving into the 21st century with our online ticket initiative."

Tickets for this year's winter musical, Disney's "Beauty and the Beast," are now on sale. The show will run from March 21 through March 23 at 7 p.m. with a Saturday matinee at 2 p.m. in the NCHS auditorium.

Based on the animated feature, it includes songs by Alan Menken, Howard Ashman and Tim Rice. The audience will be transported to a French town where Maurice becomes lost in the woods and seeks shelter in an old castle, but the master is a beast that takes him captive. Belle gives up her freedom to save his life. Belle tames the Beast and he transforms back into a handsome prince.

Prior to the matinee show, Belle's Banquet will provide lunch from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. in the NCHS Wagner Room. In addition to lunch and desserts, there will be crafts and show preview with some of the characters. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
