The classic story tells 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. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end, and he will be transformed to his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
This show is for intermediate-advanced students ages 8 and up, with many fun, supporting roles that allow students to play enchanted objects in the Beast’s castle, this “tale as old as time” is filled with fun and magic for all.
