The Award-winning animated film and stage play comes to life in this romantic and beloved take on the classic fairytale. Based on the original Broadway production and motion picture, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. is a fantastic adaptation of the story of transformation and tolerance.

The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is 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.

The hit movie “The Bird Cage” was based on this musical comedy. It won Tony Awards in 1984 and for its revival in 2010. It’s the hilarious story of Georges and Albin, two men partnered for better or worse. It all comes apart when Albin’s son announces his impending marriage to the daughter of a bigoted politician. Further complications include the family business which is a nightclub for female impersonators. Georges agrees to masquerade as “normal” to meet the girl’s parents but Albin has other plans. It all ends up in a wild romp.
