UI to football fans: Please don't park at Hancher for Wisconsin game

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Hawkeye fans attending the football game with Wisconsin on Saturday, Oct. 28 should not park at the Hancher Auditorium parking lots.

Performances of the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical "Beauty and the Beast" will take place at Hancher Auditorium at 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday.

Out of deference to the people attending the performance, the UI Cambus shuttle buses that normally run between the Hancher parking lots and Kinnick Stadium will not be operating for the Wisconsin game.

"Beauty and the Beast" includes all the Alan Menken/Howard Ashman songs from the Disney animated film, plus an additional Menken/Ashman song written for the movie but not used, and seven new Alan Menken songs with lyrics by Tim Rice. The production also features the spectacular Tony Award-winning costumes by Ann Hould-Ward.

The stage musical of "Beauty and the Beast" has become a long-running hit of international scope. In April, "Beauty and the Beast" celebrated six years on Broadway. The Hancher engagement is part of a 25-city North American tour, and "Beauty and the Beast" productions are also currently running in Germany and Spain.
