Step into the enchanted world of Broadway’s modern classic, Disney’s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. Based on the Academy Award winning animated feature, the stage version of Disney’s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST includes all of the wonderful songs from the film, plus new songs written especially for the Broadway version.
Audiences will be transported to a lovely French provincial town where the beautiful Belle lives with her father – a dotty inventor. When her father doesn’t return from a trip to the local fair, Belle rushes off to find him. To her dismay, she discovers he is being held captive in an old castle by a horrible beast. She trades her freedom for his and the “tale as old as time” begins.
How Belle tames the unfortunate Beast and his ultimate transformation into a handsome prince continues to enthrall audiences of all ages. Filled with spectacular costume and set opportunities, Disney’s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is family theatre at its best.
