The Pineland Players, based in Medford NJ and established in 1977, are doing Disney’s “Beauty of the Beast” this weekend. The production is quite elaborate for local community theatre, but that’s standard practice for the Pineland Players. This musical based on the Broadway play is first rate and can be seen the rest of the weekend at the Burlington County Institute of Technology Westhampton Campus. Nathan Titus steals the show as Le Fou, Gaston’s toady sidekick, and some woman named Jennifer Walker is elegant charm as Mrs. Potts (no nepotism here, The Bride really is good). Michael Carty is also notable as Gaston, perfectly cast. It’s a wonderful show that definitely should be seen while it’s running.
