ABOUT THE SHOW

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 spectacular costume and set opportunities or, even more simply staged, Disney's Beauty and the Beast offers a great opportunity to bring your entire community together for family theatre at its best.


CHARACTER BREAKDOWN

Belle

A vibrant, intelligent girl with beauty, who wants more out of the life than an ordinary existence. She is optimistic, fun-loving, caring, and eager to experience life.

Beast

A Prince transformed into a terrifying beast for his lack of compassion. He is hot-tempered and commanding, but has a warm, loving heart buried far beneath his gruff exterior.

Gaston

The egotistical, ultra-masculine villain determined to marry Belle. He is manipulative yet charming and earnest.

Maurice

Belle's loving, eccentric father. A child at heart and inventor in his own world.

Cogsworth

A tightly-wound, enchanted mantle clock and the head of the Beast's household. He is uptight, strict, and punctual but also hard-working, faithful, and thorough.

Mrs. Potts

A warm-hearted, maternal enchanted teapot. She is loyal, caring, and playful.

Lumiere

A suave, debonair enchanted candelabra. He is a loyal and steadfast servant.

Chip

An enchanted teacup and Mrs. Potts' darling little boy. He is innocent, playful, and bright-eyed.

Babette

A saucy, enchanted feather-duster, and the object of Lumiere's affections. She is the playful, gorgeous, seductive French maid.

Madame De La Grande Bouche

A former opera diva-turned-enchanted wardrobe. She has a caring, refined, larger than life personality.

Lefou

Gaston's bumbling sidekick. He is loyal, energetic, and optimistic, but not quite the brightest guy.

The scheming proprietor of the local insane asylum. He is a dark, sinister villain who aides Gaston in his plot to marry Belle.
