Disney’s Broadway musical “Beauty and the Beast” opens Shawnee Little Theatre’s 50th Anniversary Season. Performance are today and Oct. 8 at 2 p.m. Other shows will be 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 3, 6, 7, 12, 13 and 14.

Shawnee Little Theatre's "Beauty and the Beast' is enjoying capacity ticket sales. While very few seats remain for the extended performance run, there are standby theatre goers seated just before the performance each night. Starting 30 minutes before showtime, the box office will compile a list of waiting theatre goers, with preference to season subscribers. When tickets are turned back or become available, those waiting will be seated on a first come, first served basis before the performance begins. SLT encourages audiences determined to see the show to avail themselves of this process as many standby by patrons are seated each show.
