Culture shot: Disney on the local stage

Walt Disney Studios released its latest live-action movie in March, bringing in more than $1 billion at box offices worldwide with “Beauty and the Beast.” At least one area theater this summer will try to capitalize on that craze with its own youth production of the musical. The North Canton Playhouse will open its version of “Beauty and the Beast” on July 27.
