Beauty and the Beast

"Be Our Guest" and step into the enchanted world of Broadway's modern classic, Disney's Beauty and the Beast. This 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 into 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. With spectacular costumes, singing, and dancing, this "tale as old as time" is the perfect opportunity to bring your entire family to live theatre at its best. 

Upright Rating: G (General Audience) appropriate for all ages.
