Disney's Beauty and the Beast

"Be Our Guest" for this classic "Tale As Old As Time!" This musical stage version of Disney's Beauty and the Beast is based on the Academy Award-winning animated film, and features your favorite songs including ‘Belle,’ ‘Gaston,’ ‘The Mob Song’ and ‘Something There.’ The 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.
