By Pat Craig, Contra Costa Times, Walnut Creek, Calif. Jul. 22--TRI-VALLEY Repertory Theatre will be making a lot of families happy with its charming production of "Disney's Beauty and the Beast," which opened during the weekend in Livermore's new Bankhead Theater. After seeing the show several times, it is clear to me that the Disney people responsible for "Beauty" not only spent much of their youth in the thrall of classic Broadway musicals, but paid close attention as well.

By Hallie Woodward Rarely does a sequel beat out the original. But in the "Hellboy" series, the sequel does just that. Ron Perlman returns as Hellboy, the hugely muscular, cigar- chomping, red-face demon. He's still fighting against the bad and the ugly through the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense.
