Beauty and the Beast
This revered fairytale – a timeless family favorite – tells the story of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. All of the fanciful characters, such as a talking tightly wound clock (the butler), adorable tea cup (a young boy), and a kindhearted candelabra (maître d’), are trapped in this spellbound form until the beast, can learn to love and have his love returned. But time is running out.
This “tale as old as time,” reminds us to look beyond one’s exterior and find the beauty from within.
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature, with songs including “Be Our Guest,” “Gaston,” and of course “Beauty and the Beast.”
