A few Santaquin residents were recently involved in the Spanish Fork Community Theater’s production of Beauty and the Beast. Ruel Haymond played the part of Maurice, and Elizabeth Eastman was one of the wolves.
I’ve on only one other occasion seen a play that was so well done, and that was Phantom of the Opera on Broadway. The acting was nearly flawless and the set and costumes were impeccable.
A friend of mine, from the Los Angeles area, was astonished at the quality of the production. He attends several plays a year and says that the quality of this Beauty and the Beast topped even Disney’s own professional rendition of Lion King.
Congratulations to Ruel, Eli, and the rest of the cast for a spectacular performance.
