The Danville Symphony Orchestra and DLO (Danville Light Opera) Theatre are combining talents this weekend to present Disney’s Beauty and the Beast….

Over 60 local performers and 40 professional musicians from the Illiana area will be involved in the show.  Belinda Smith says having the full orchestra behind you when you perform is magical….
