Disney's Beauty and the Beast

Music by Alan Menken, Lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice, Book by Linda Wolverton

Directed by Sarah Karlen

Disney's captivating musical version of the classic fairy tale where a selfish, young prince is doomed to live his life as a beast, unless he can redeem himself by learning to love and be loved. A "tale as old as time," Disney's Beauty and the Beast is family theatre at its best.
