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.

Little Miss Broadway

Canton-born girl performs in Disney’s “Mary Poppins” musical. At an age when many children are seeing a play for the first time in their lives, Alexandra Berro acts in them. Last year, the 10-year-old Canton native landed a Broadway role in the current production of Disney’s “Mary Poppins” in New York City.
