Based on the Academy-Award winning animated feature, the stage version includes all of the wonderful songs written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice. The original Broadway production ran for over 13 years and was nominated for 9 TONY Awards including Best Musical.

“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 to 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. ”

A note from the Director, Nancy Durgin

I know everyone is stretched to the limit, and many of us are helping others already.  MVHS Players truly needs to purchase 6 body microphones for their upcoming smash hit production of Beauty and the Beast. We need between $3500-5000 for these new instruments. We currently have about 3k in sponsors and budget. Any thing would help. Checks made to MVHS Players. Please contact me at mame_waldo@yahoo.com for sponsor forms, and you will be listed in the program. We believe we will cover these costs in our gate receipts, and are even willing to take a loan, and pay you back. If we don’t, I will pay you back personally. Thank you for your support!
