What is The Production About?
Beauty and the Beast tells the story of a cold-blooded prince who has been magically transformed into an unsightly creature as punishment for his selfish ways. To revert into his true human form, the Beast must first learn to love a bright, beautiful young woman whom he has imprisoned in his enchanted castle before it is too late. The Musical has been adapted from Walt Disney Pictures' Academy Award-winning 1991 animated musical film – which in turn had been based on the classic French fairy tale by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont
