Knoxville High School’s production of Beauty and the Beast starts at 7 Friday night, and tickets are still available at The Next Chapter and at seatyourself.biz/knoxvillehs. Choir director Jackie Duffy says there will be a Royal Party at 1:00 Saturday afternoon in the lobby of the Performing Arts Center, where children can come meet the Enchanted Characters, and even have a sword fight with Gaston. She says for $10, kids will get admission to the lobby, a Royal prize, a treat and they can go backstage and experience the Beauty and the Beast set from the stage, and even sing a song if they want. Tickets will be $3 after 2, but the stage will be closed and the prizes put away.
