Disney's Beauty and the Beast

November 4 - November 13, 2005

Misner Auditorium at Central School, 621 Grove Street, Glencoe, IL 60022

Step into the enchanted world of Broadway's modern classic, Disney's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. Based on the Academy Award winning animated feature, the stage version of Disney's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST includes all of the wonderful songs from the film, written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, (the team responsible for LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS), plus new songs written especially for the Broadway version by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice (ALADDIN, AIDA).

Audiences will be transported to a lovely French provincial town where the beautiful Belle lives with her father - a dotty inventor. When her father doesn't return from a trip to the local fair, Belle rushes off to find him. To her dismay, she discovers he is being held captive in an old castle by a horrible beast. She trades her freedom for his and the "tale as old as time" begins.

How Belle tames the unfortunate Beast and his ultimate transformation into a handsome prince continues to enthrall audiences on Broadway nightly. In an unprecedented move, Disney has allowed MTI to license stage performances of the show to its customers while the show continues to play in New York. Disney's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST offers a great opportunity to bring your entire community together for family theatre at its best.

Music by: Alan Menken
Lyrics by: Howard Ashman and Tim Rice
Book by: Linda Woolverton
