Tampa, Fla. – Proceeds from the New Tampa Players’ Disney’s Beauty and the Beast performance on Sunday, July 28 will benefit the community, via the non-profit University Area Community Development Corporation (UACDC).
Tickets will be sold on a “pay what you can” basis at the door to the July 28 7:30 p.m. performance, held at the University Area Community Center at 14013 N. 22nd St., Tampa, 33613.
This beloved tale of an intelligent, brave, kind-hearted and beautiful bookworm and an arrogant prince transformed into a monstrous beast will be directed by Kari Ann Stamatoplos and choreographed by Jarrett W. Koski, with musical direction by G. Frank Meekins.
“Attending the ‘pay what you can night’ at the University Area CDC is a great way for families to enjoy a fun night of theater, while also supporting their community,” said Wendy Leigh, chief development and marketing officer at UACDC. “Beauty and the Beast will be terrific entertainment that also provides the opportunity, for parents who wish to, to teach their children about community involvement in a tangible way.”
Located at 14013 North 22nd Street in Tampa, 33613, the UACDC Community Center offers much more than computer training. Basketball courts, a Head Start preschool program, performing arts classes for children, performance spaces, a gym, a brand new pavilion and more are included in the community center.
Proceeds from this performance will go toward the UACDC mission of providing support for thousands of Tampa residents through youth programs, adult education and resource assistance. Its primary mission is the redevelopment and sustainability of the at-risk areas surrounding University of South Florida’s Tampa campus.
