Step into the enchanted world of Broadway’s modern classic, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, an international sensation. Based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature, the stage version includes all the wonderful songs written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, “Be Our Guest” & “Beauty and the Beast”, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice. The original Broadway production ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
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. This "tale as old as time" is filled with great spectacle and magic for the entire family.
Directed by Fremont Street Theater Company Artistic Director, Madeline Franklin. Kara Williams Posmer, Choreographer and Musical Director, Ken McMullen. Set Design by Brett Baleskie and Costume Design by Marcy Angsurat.
