Posted by Danielle Wilson email

RICHMOND,VA (WWBT)-  In 12 About Town this week we have a Broadway favorite, some "art in the park" and an opportunity to get out and "get moving" for a great cause!

"Disney's Beauty and the Beast" is a well-known classic and this weekend you can see it come alive on stage as a Broadway musical!

This Friday and Saturday is your chance to experience this love story complete with lavish costumes, sets and all the unforgettable characters.

All three performances will be at the Landmark Theater.

Visit www.landmarktheater.net for tickets.

Wake up a little bit earlier this Saturday morning to walk or jog for a great cause!

The 6th Annual ASK Fun Walk and 5K will begin at 7 am at Short Pump Town Center!

This family-friendly event is in honor of children in the Central Virginia area with cancer.

Make sure you join in the post-race celebration for live music, food and fun!

If you're looking to enjoy the weather a little "later" in the day, why not check out "Arts in the Park"!

Both Saturday and Sunday Byrd Park will host over 450 artists from around the U.S.

Artists will display and sell paintings, jewelry, ceramics and woodwork.
