Heather Colletti
Owner, Teacher, and Choreographer

Arts along with Phyllis Mouton and JoAnna Mott. She is
the credited director and principle choreographer of the
following SPA productions: Happily Ever After (2018),
Wizard of Oz (2017), Alice in Wonderland (2016), The
Sleeping Beauty (2015), The Nutcracker (1998-2010, 2014,
2018), Peter Pan (2014), Peter and the Wolf (2013), Aladdin
(2012), Snow White (2011), Alice in Wonderland (2010,

(2004), The Tales of Beatrix Potter (2003), Swan Lake (2002), Coppelia (2001), and Sleeping Beauty (2000).
In the fall of 2006, Heather became the Artistic Director of the
newly founded Studio for the Performing Arts Ballet Company.
Having begun her training at the age of five, it was not long before Heather realized her
true love for ballet. Heather’s extensive classical ballet training coupled with the desire
to educate others has brought her to the remarkable place she is today. As a teacher,
Heather’s intent is to provide an enriching atmosphere in which her students feel free to
be creative and express themselves through positive reinforcement and encouragement.
Providing a high quality program is paramount to Heather so her students can develop artistically,
physically, emotionally and intellectually. “I dance, teach and choreograph with the purpose to boost
my students’ self-esteem and to assist at every opportunity the development of their imaginations.”
Heather is fueled by Christ and the love and support from her 3rd grade pen pal, now husband, Jared,
and their four children Isaiah, Sedessa, Leah, and Simon.

Phyllis Mouton
Owner, Teacher, and Ballet Coordinator
Phyllis is part owner of The Studio for the Performing
Arts, Inc. and has been an active participant with the
SPA Ballet Company Ballets since 2006. Phyllis sees her
role in the Ballet Productions as coordinating for all of
the artistic team and assisting them in accomplishing
their goals and ideas. This can be as simple as taking over
a rehearsal, shopping for specific materials for props,
organization of paperwork, and setting up advertisements,
communicating changes or deadlines. Phyllis’s primary
goal for the productions is to provide a venue that fosters
for the participants of the ballet a memory that they can
remember in years from now, as fond yet rewarding experience, a performance that the children in
the audience will always remember and adults are glad they came and will want to return. Phyllis
feels that it is truly collaborative effort by all artists involved and she is honored to work with such a
talented Team.

In his mirror, The Prince, surveys his image with delight. The Prince's Staff surrounds
him as they prepare for the Royal Ball. The castle, buzzing with activity is interrupt-
ed by the arrival of La Fée Magnifique, disguised as a beggar woman. The Prince,
both irritated by the interruption and disgusted by her appearance sends her away.
The Royal Ball begins and the night is filled with dancing and delight; in the
midst of the joyous evening the evil fairy La Fée Magnifique returns accom-
panied by her sister La Fée Luminaire. Out of anger, and to teach the egotisti-
cal and self-centered Prince a lesson, La Fée Magnifique transforms him into a
hideous beast and curses him along with his kingdom. The Prince and his Staff
are to spend the rest of their lives imprisoned within the castle walls. La Fée
Luminaire, the kinder of the sisters approaches the Prince, and out of compas-
sion tells him that her sister’s spell can be broken. La Fée Luminaire, gives the
Prince a magical rose and explains that if by the fall of the final petal he can
learn to love and be loved in return he will be transformed back into a prince.

Act I Scene II
In a Peaceful Village
In a peaceful French village lives a merchant named Maurice and his three daugh-
ters; Chantelle, Isabelle, and the youngest Beauty. Beauty has a good heart, she is
kind and content with simplicity, unlike her sisters who want to live a life beyond
their fathers means. Maurice and his daughters travel to the village market be-
fore he sets off to deliver goods to a distant Provence. Maurice and his daughters
peruse the marketplace along with other Merchants, Villagers, and even School
Children with their Teacher. Maurice picks up his goods he has been commis-
sioned to deliver; excited by the promise a lucrative reward, he asks his daugh-
ters if they have any requests for when he returns. Chantelle and Isabelle ask for
precious gifts, but Beauty asks for a single rose and for his quick and safe return.

Maurice becomes disoriented and he takes a wrong turn, as he is now trav-
eling upon a long forgotten road. Maurice comes upon a pack of ravenous
Wolves. A pursuit ensues and Maurice is almost caught by the pack. With
sheer luck and determination, Maurice is able to escape from the Wolves.
Act I Scene IV

Disoriented, Maurice tries to return to the original path, finding him-
self at the gate of a Magical Garden. Maurice is greeted by the Siren of

try to the enchanted castle before him, sensing his kindness, the Siren gifts
Maurice a magical key, granting him access to the once grand Kingdom.

Act I Scene V
The Capture of Maurice
Enamored by the beauty of the castle grounds, Maurice unknowingly wanders into
the Beast's treasured rose garden and thoughtlessly plucks a rose for Beauty. Infu-
riated by how brazen Maurice is, the Beast takes him prisoner. Maurice pleads for
his life, showing a glimpse of kindness Beast agrees to free him. However, the Beast
tells Maurice he may only retain his freedom if he sends someone in his place. For
the Beast, time is running out. With the shedding of another petal, only 4 remain.
Act I Scene VI
A Selfless Act
With Maurice not returning as planned, Beauty and her Sisters worry if their father
will ever return. Just as they begin to lose hope, Maurice returns with the rose he
promised for Beauty, and the story of how he met the Beast. Maurice explains to
his daughters that he has no intention of fulfilling the agreement that he made with
the Beast, but instead would return himself upon saying goodbye to his daughters.
Learning of her father’s fate, Beauty a gentle, kind and virtuous daughter insists
to go in his place. Maurice refuses to allow Beauty to take his sentence, he will be
returning to the Beast. Beauty, cunning as she is kind, convinces Maurice to leave
in the morning after a good nights sleep, in hopes of a changing her fathers fate.

Act I Scene VII

A Decision Made
La Fée Luminaire, knows that Beauty may be the Beasts only chance of be-
ing restored back to his former self. Banding with her Entourage, La Fée
Luminaire summons Beauty while she sleeps, encouraging her to indeed
take the place of her father at the Beast's castle. Learning of Luminaire’s in-
terference, La Fée Magnifique is displeased, but permits Beauty to take
her fathers place, for no one as lovely as Beauty could ever love the Beast.
There will be a 15 minute intermission

Act II Scene I
Return to The Forgotten Road
Emboldened by La Fée Luminaire, Beauty sneaks away from her family's es-
tate in search of the Beast's castle. As Beauty is journeying through the same
woods her father described in his story, she too crosses paths with the ravenous
wolf pack. Surrounded by Wolves and exhausted by her journey Beauty is swept
off her feet by the pack. Showing her resourcefulness Beauty pretends she per-
ishes during the struggle, escaping the clutches of the still hungry predators.

Act II Scene II
The Key to The Kingdom
Beauty finally makes her way through the treacherous path to the gates of the
Magical Garden. The Siren of the Key and her Keyholders are reluctant to allow
Beauty to enter, until Beauty reveals the key that she had taken from her father.
Beauty is granted entrance to the castle as the Keyholders and Siren watch with
anticipation as another petal falls. Meanwhile, Maurice and his other daughters
awake to discover that Beauty has left in the night. Beauty's family venture out
as they attempt to retrace Maurice's steps back to the castle. Another petal falls
as Beauty meets the Beast. At first Beauty is frightened by the Beast's appear-
ance but quickly learns he has a gentle soul and will be safe within his castle walls.

Act II Scene III

Excited by Beauty's arrival, the Beast's Servants introduce themselves and work
to make Beauty feel safe in her new home. The Prince's Servants*, Place Set-
tings, and Tea Cups begin to transform the castle into a place of enchantment.
Beauty finds herself unexpectedly drawn to the Beast's charm and gentleness.
Meanwhile, as Beauty is beginning to accept her new life, Maurice and Beauty's
Sisters are nearing the castle. La Fée Luminaire, and La Fée Magnifique appear
just as their new found love begins to bloom. Accepting Beauty into his heart, the
Beast brings her to his beloved rose garden. The Beast's warmth and kindness
allows Beauty to see past the Beast's frightening appearance. La Fée Luminaire,
and La Fée Magnifique can see the Beast's heart has changed and Beauty's love in
return. Beauty and the Beasts's shared affection breaks the spell and allows the
Beast to once again become the Prince he once was. Gently, the final petal falls.
*Rosebuds & Rose Garden appear in this scene

A Tale As Old As Time
Beauty's beloved family arrives just as the Beast transforms back into a
Prince. The Prince and his Kingdom are again restored to their former gran-
deur, and the Prince now has a heart full of love to share with his people. The
