Full of musical numbers, dancing and more than a little touch of magic, this lively adaptation of the timeless fairy tale features all of the memorable characters and age-old lessons that have made Beauty and the Beast a favorite for countless generations. Plus, prior to the morning performances, there's an interactive arts workshop with mask-making and more. The story finds Beauty, unlike her sisters, too busy poring over her favorite books to search for her Prince Charming. But soon, finding love becomes the least of her worries when, to settle her father's debts, she is snatched away by a monstrous beast and locked inside his mysterious magic castle. In the end, both Beauty and the Beast learn valuable lessons about friendship and love -- and that true radiance comes from within.
