Based on the Academy Award®-winning Disney animated feature, Beauty and the Beast includes the film’s original songs by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice. Your audiences will be transported into the heart of provincial life and the story of a special girl named Belle. When her father Maurice becomes lost in the woods on the way to the fair, he seeks shelter in an old castle but is captured by the ferocious master. To save her father’s life, Belle gives up her freedom and takes his place as captive. Belle's taming of the Beast and his ultimate transformation back into a handsome prince enthralled Broadway audiences for over 13 years. This “Tale as Old as Time” provides spectacular costume and set opportunities but is just as effective with simple staging. In any form, Beauty and the Beast will bring your entire community together for family theatre at its best.
