Meet the Cast of Beauty and the Beast: Lumiere & Cogsworth

We are officially under a week away from opening night of Beauty and the Beast at Newmarket Theatre! Just in time for tech week, we wanted to introduce two of the shining stars of our cast. Hunter Agnew will be seen as Lumiere after previously performing in Wavestage productions such as Titanic and Big Fish (Don Price)Michael Barker makes a grand return to Wavestage as Cogsworth. Long-term Wavestage audiences will remember him from our productions of Cabaret (Emcee) and Oliver (Fagin).

Get to know these two hysterical talents before seeing them on stage from April 19-22 at Newmarket Theatre!

Meet the Cast of Beauty and the Beast: Belle

When we held auditions for Beauty and the Beast, our creative team had a very specific vision in mind for the leading role. There were over 200 applicants for this role alone - our leading lady emerged from the sea of hopefuls! We have no doubt that our Belle, Genna Giampaolo, will wow you will her incredible performance as this iconic leading lady. Here's what she had to say about her experience preparing for this role:

It's the iconic villainous duo that everybody loves to hate (or secretly love). Although their portrayals are convincing, we can assure you that the real men behind the roles of Gaston and LeFou are nothing like their theatrical counterparts. We talked with our very own Gaston, Bevan Bühler, and Lefou, Milton Dover, to take a peek into their process as they prepare for these roles. 

Beauty and the Beast Table Read

Beauty and the Beast Table Read

Earlier this month, our cast of Beauty and the Beast gathered for the first time to perform a table read of this exciting production! In these first few hours we began to see this "tale as old as time" step off of the page and come to life. We are thrilled to have such a multi-talented cast and will be sharing many more behind-the-scenes sneak peeks in the coming weeks as we dive into rehearsals!

The young performers had been rehearsing since September; weekly practices furthered their skills in dance, singing, and acting. 

Big Fish Table Read

Big Fish, The Musical is making its way to Newmarket Theatre this January. The cast recently joined for their first table read and we are thrilled to share a peek behind-the-scenes at this exciting rehearsal. The table read was truly a high-energy event and unlike any table read we've seen. Cast members broke out into laughter, Alabama stompin', and tears as they told this heartwarming tale together for the first time.
