Beauty and the Beast


The Enchanting Musical Fairytale

Book by Linda Woolverton, Music by Alan Menken, Lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice

Based on the smash hit 1991 Disney movie and dating back to a late 18th-century classic French fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast tells the story of Belle, a beautiful and intelligent young woman who feels out of place in her provincial French village. When her father is imprisoned in a mysterious castle, Belle’s attempt to rescue him leads to her capture by the Beast, a grisly and fearsome monster, who was long ago trapped in his gruesome form by an enchantress. The only way for the Beast to become human again is if he learns to love and be loved in return. The Beast’s enchanted household - populated by such beloved characters as Mrs. Potts, Lumiere, Cogsworth, and Chip - watch anxiously as Belle and the Beast grow to understand and befriend one another. Their feelings grow ever deeper as the clock ticks - will they confess their love for one another before it is too late?
