‘Beauty and the Beast’ whips up interest for theatre February 22, 2010

It is often said that theatre is dying in Ghana but after watching Spotlight Multimedia’s musical presentation of the classic fairytale love affair in ‘Beauty and The Beast’, I think it is safe to assume that there is a renaissance in theatre and it is even more heartwarming to know that it is being led by the youth. The play ran at the Efua Sutherland Drama Studio of the University Of Ghana from February 11-14 providing a wonderful experience for students of the university and the general public during the Valentine season.

The musical play was a captivating adaptation by Nicholas S.D Asante and although the story of Beauty and the Beast is well-known, the cast were able to excite audiences with humour and smooth vocals. It was exciting to know that we have such talent right here in Ghana that would fit on any stage in the world, be it Broadway or the West End. The cast did not only carry their lines well but also sang in tune when the need arose. And what about the amazing dance choreography. It felt like watching the Disney animation for the Linda Wolverton classic live on stage. The costumes looked great and very appropriate for the story and I particularly like the attempt to put incorporate some Ghanaian dance into the play. Each act and each scene brought a breath of fresh air, signaling that truly Ghana’s got talent!

I certainly hope that the young minds behind the production, the cast, and the audience would continue to promote or patronize similar productions not only to sustain theatre in Ghana but also to give an alternate form of entertainment to the populace. The role of government cannot be over-emphasized but I am not encouraged to talk about that because I feel the powers that be never listen. I heard that the queen of England at some point in time made it mandatory to go to the theatres but my history is weak so I’d leave it at that. However, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to set aside a day in each month that would be mandatory for heads of public institutions to go and watch a theatre production. I better end here, I am getting carried away by all the theatre.

Beauty and the Beast on Val’s Day January 26, 2010

Valentine’s Day which falls on February 14 each year is celebrated the world over as ‘Lovers Day’ and this year will be no different.

One of the high points of this year’s Val’s Day celebration will be a play dubbed ‘Beauty and the Beast’ which will be performed by the School of Performing Arts of the University of Ghana.

Instead of the regular ‘Beauty and the Beast’ animation story by Disney, there will be local adaptations to the story in the play, organisers have promised.

It will incorporate local dialogues and traditional dances like ‘adowa’ and ‘fontomfrom’ in the play.

Nicholas Asante who is the director of the play told Myjoyonline.com that he first did the play in March 2009, as a project in his final year at the University of Ghana.

The first show, he said, had a cast and crew of 100 but he hopes to cut down that number due to financial constraints. He said he currently has about 60 casts of which three are foreign.

Nicholas is currently a teaching assistant at the University. He said it was his dream to see the theatre get very active in the country just like the Broadway shows in the Unites States.

He said, “The Beauty and Beast story is about a girl who lives in a village where everybody does the same thing. She didn’t want to be like them, she wanted to do something different. She wanted to live in a more adventurous place….the story coincides with what I wanted to do and achieve.”

Theatre Arts not taken serious

He was not happy about the way the society has taken the School of Performing Arts for granted. The ‘young’ director said it was worrying to see the way people see Theatre Arts as the last option to gaining admission to the university.

Nicholas said more than 60 per cent of the students in the School of Performing Arts are not there because they want to study the arts but rather, it is a means to an end for them to acquire university education because of sometimes their poor grades.

He added that it is only a few of them who have love for the arts from the beginning who excel in it. The rest, venture into non-arts professions such as banking after school.

The ‘Beauty and the Beast’ will be performed at the ATS Drama Studio, University of Ghana from the 11th to the 14th of February, 7pm each night.
