Power Outage Cancels SCVST 'Beauty and the Beast' Opening Night; Additional Matinee Scheduled

AUG. 7, 2006--An additional matinee performance of the St. Croix Valley Summer Theatre production of "Disney's Beauty and the Beast" has been scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 12, 1:30 p.m. in the Davis Theatre of the Kleinpell Fine Arts Building at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls

The matinee was added after the production's opening night performance before a near sellout audience Aug. 4 was cancelled due to an almost 24-hour power failure on campus last Friday and Saturday, according to Robin Murray, SCVST managing director. The power outage affected a large portion of the UW-River Falls campus, including the fine arts building.

There is a good availability of tickets for the newly scheduled matinee, Aug. 12, but limited seating for the remaining evening performances on Aug. 9-12.

"Disney's Beauty and the Beast" is the closing production in the summer theater's 40 th anniversary season. Performances are held in Davis Theatre, Kleinpell Fine Arts Building, 420 Cascade Ave., on the UW-River Falls campus.

Ticket prices range from $10 to $15. Ticket information and reservations call 715-425-3114 or 800-228-5423.
