With the help of Columbus State Community College, the CATCO is Kids players enact a raucous interpretation of Beauty and the Beast in the Italian tradition of commedia dell’arte, characterized by stock characters, a clown-like ensemble, and zany comedy. In this telling, Isabella, the daughter of a money-obsessed miser, is promised by her father to wed Il Capitano, a boastful soldier. However, Isabella only has eyes for the noble Leandro, and so it is up to her father’s servant, Arlecchino, and his band of witless Zannis to reunite her with her true love. Trading other versions’ literal beast for an imaginary one, the conspirators invent a story about a false kidnapping at the hands of a monster to cover up Isabella’s disappearance.
