She warned him not to be deceived by appearances,
for beauty is found within…
Based on the original Broadway production, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr. is a fantastic adaptation of the story of transformation and tolerance.
The classic story tells of Belle, an adventurous young woman in a small provincial town in France, and the Beast, her hideous captor who is actually a young prince who was transformed by an enchantress as punishment for his cruel and selfish ways. In order to break the spell, the Beast must learn to love another and earn love in return – before time runs out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr. features music by ALAN MENKEN, lyrics by HOWARD ASHMAN and TIM RICE, based on the book by Linda Woolverton, was originally directed by Robert Jess Roth and originally produced by Disney Theatrical Productions.
Directed by Pam Jorgensen, Emily Moore, and Rick Rohde, and lighting and sound design and effects by Stuart Wilson; scenic construction and painting, costuming, hair and makeup, and technical work by Huntley High School Scenic Crew, Studio Crew, and Tech Crew members, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr. is sure to make you believe that fairy tales really do come true.
