Syfy Beauty and the BeastSyfy’s Beauty and the Beast this weekend kicks off a run of Saturday original movies rooted in the dark fantasy tradition of classic fairy tales (more on that here).

But if Disney’s lighthearted musical take on the legend is more your style, you can catch a Christian Youth Theater Phoenix production based on that version 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the Mesa Arts Center, 1 E. Main St.
