We asked St. Louis native Jason Michael Evans, the Beast in our upcoming production of Disney's "Beauty and the Beast," what drew him to Variety Children's Theatre. What he said was very un-Beastlike:
"What I love about Variety is that, while it is a priority to put on as great of a production as possible, Variety's top priority is and always will be the kids. Those kids who inspire us.
What took my interest from a spark to a flame was the chance not only to meet those kids that inspire me so much, but to actually work with them. To become their peer and friend."
Jason's returning to St. Louis. We hope you'll be at the Touhill to welcome him. Show runs October 21-23. Tickets here.
