Disney’s Beauty & the Beast
If you have any little princesses or princes in your immediate family, you absolutely must head over to the AT&T Performing Arts Center before Disney’s Beauty & the Beast leaves town! This entertaining musical, based on the animated 1991 Disney movie, portrays the classic fairy tale in a lush and lively style that will keep viewers of all ages highly entertained.
A Tale as Old as Time…
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast tells the story of Belle, a young woman who lives in a small town where her love of reading makes her a nerdy oddball. Every other girl in the village has a crush on a debonair-but-stupid fellow, Gaston. Gaston, however, ignores his adoring fans and pursues Belle – not because she is intelligent and interesting, but because she is the most beautiful girl he’s ever seen.
Happily Ever After
When Belle’s beloved father is captured by a scary beast, she frees him by offering herself as a prisoner, instead. The plot unfolds from there, and despite many more travails, everyone ends up living happily ever after. This is a fairy tale, after all!
