A tale not so old as time

Local actor Andre Shoals returns to the Chanhassen stage in ‘Beauty and the Beast’

As the stage lights turn on at the main stage of Chanhassen Dinner Theatre, a lone figure sits on the side, getting ready to set the scene for “Beauty and the Beast.” 

All attention is on Andre Shoals, 45, who is the narrator and an ensemble member in Chanhassen’s new musical production of the fairy tale that was brought to life in a popular Disney animated movie. 

The talented Shoals is dressed in a cloth coat and scarf, a simple outfit that gives no hint of the inventive, colorful costuming that theater-goers are about to see in this visual feast for the eyes. 

In his other “Beauty” role, Shoals plays a chair. Attached to the chest of his shimmering silver costume is a chair, which at one point Belle sits in, as Shoals kneels and looks at her with admiration.
