“I want adventure in the great-wide somewhere, I wanted more than I can tell… For once in might be grand to have someone understand, I want so much more than they’ve got planned!”
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.
But, if the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed to his former self.
Time is running out. If he doesn’t learn his lesson soon, the Beast and his entire household will be doomed for all eternity.
With lots of amazing characters, epic costumes and a timeless script, we can’t wait to get started!
Based on the original Broadway production that ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, and the Academy Award-winning motion picture, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. is a fantastic adaptation of the story of transformation and tolerance. Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. features some of the most popular songs ever written, including “Be Our Guest,” “Gaston,” and “Human Again.”
