Event: Beauty and the Beast Musical by Disney, book reading with JAMMs

Good day everyone !
The Summer is at its peak. Its a tough task to keep kids busy in these vacation times. Our no-nonsense Mommy group JAMMs promotes and takes part in various activities to help mummies and the kids. One such event yesterday was the Book reading of Disney's Beauty and the Beast as part of the JAMMs Bool club meet.

Have you seen the spectacular Ads on TV and newspaper about the Musical Beauty and the beast? Enthralling arent they?
We selected few moms had the privilege to attend with kids at the Landmark book store, Vashi the book reading of Disney's Beauty and the Beast by none other than the Cast of the Musical. Yipee ! :D

Playing from May 6th - 15th in Mumbai. Go Book your tickets !


Surrounded by books we had Meher Mistry as Belle and the Beast with the cute narrator, keep our kids seated in one place for over 30mins. Which is quite a  feat ! Round of Applause for you guys !


The actors were very expressive and their delivery of dialog plus signing was truly captivating. If I hadnt been covering this event, you would have found me on the floor with the kids, getting carried away in the Magical land of Belle, Gaston, Mrs Potts, The Inventor,...and the Beast.

Love their expressions and narration !
Belle was truly a lovely maiden and Beast was ferocious at his best. I am wondering if with a Book Reading we are floored how will it be to see it LIVE !

Yes, The Musical one of its kind in India will be playing in aamchi Mumbai from May 6 to 15th, 2016. This is its 2nd year and the final run. But this time its going to be, first time in the World in open air at the NSCI, SVP Stadium: Mumbai. Its a once in a Life-Time chance, make sure to attend it :)

Disney's classic french fairy tail The Beauty and the Beast which ran for 13years on Broadway is one of the longest running shows. This one has been developed in India with the same storyline, songs,... all done using Indian local resources. 

All the videos I watched on Youtube, the sets are magnificent, stunning costumes and props, eyes riveting lighting, choreography and not to mention the cast,the dancers, technicians behind who sing, dance, deliver dialog all Live without a retake :o

This extravaganza plays for 130 mins with seating arrangements that ensure each one gets the best view. They start working on the play at least 6 months in advance. Phew ! See the rehearsal video from Youtube below.
