Disney's Beauty and the Beast is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).

  • Show Details

    This lovable stage version of Beauty and the Beast was adapted from the 1991 Academy-Award winning animated Disney film, and was a steppingstone to 2017’s live action film.  We think the stage version has a special magic, where audiences get to see actors transform before their very eyes.


    Originally a classic French fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast tells the story 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.
