Step into the magical world of Disney with Beauty and the Beast, where young actors take on the roles made famous by the animated movie. This show features original music from composers Alan Menken and Howard Ashman (The Little Mermaid), along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice (Evita). You and your family will be transported to the heart of a quaint French town, where the beautiful and intelligent Belle yearns for something more than her provincial life. When her father gets lost in the woods, he seeks shelter in an old castle but is soon taken captive by the master of the house -- a horrible Beast. Belle surrenders her freedom to save her father's life and, by taming the Beast, teaches him the meaning of love.
