This is Part 1 of 2 on the magic and love brought to our neighborhood by The Legendary Jerry Elison.

SCERA Spotlight Podcast

When you are in Disney's Beauty and the Beast, you really need to 'Consider yourself part of the furniture!' to borrow a lyric from another great musical. Kyle Baugh and Caroline Glissmeyer have done just that, playing a clock (Cogsworth) and a chandelier ... just two in an enormous cast of furnishings and townspeople, heroes and villains. And we squeezed-in an interview with Paige Ford, a member of the crew. It's a fun episode to enjoy, even with some technical hiccups.  ! Quin Swallow, Kyle Baugh and Caroline Glissmeyer
