ABOUT THE SHOW: DISNEY’S BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
Based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast includes all of the wonderful songs written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice. The Tony Award-winning musical tells the tale 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. Can the Beast learn to love and be loved in return before time runs out? Music by Alan Menken, Lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice, Book by Linda Woolverton. RATED: PG for mild fantasy violence.
