This tale as old as time is a musical production the whole family will enjoy! Disney brings romance and fast-paced action to the story of an enchantress that transforms a cruel and vain prince into a hideous Beast. She leaves him only one way to reverse the curse – to fall in love with another and earn her love in return. Belle, a beautiful book-lover encounters the Beast when she arrives at his castle to plead for her father’s freedom, ultimately trading her own for his. Tensions over Belle’s imprisonment escalate in the town, spurred on by Gaston, the selfish lover who seeks Belle’s hand in marriage. Meanwhile the relationship between Belle and the Beast grows, leading to an emotional, transformative conflict that finds resolution in the strength of true love. Children attending the show in costume welcome!
